Icelands new national football arena Laugardalsvöllur

Iceland nation flagThe Icelandic football Association is planning a new national stadium for Iceland. The current stadium, Laugardalsvöllur, only holds a capacity of 9.800, which is not enough to answer the demand for tickets. Planning has been going on since last year and a commitee has now recomended  that the new stadium will be build in Laugardal in Reykjavik, the same site as the current stadium.

Most of the discussion so far has been on wether one should build a multicultural stadium or just a football stadium. It is expected that a decision regarding the stadium will be taken before the end of the season.

    It would make sense for a new Icelandic Club side joining the Norwegian league, playing home games in the new national stadium.
    A club that would probably have a good following in football mad Iceland.
