Næstved BK is a classic Danish club with a rich history. When it comes to their stadium, it’s very much the same story. Næstved Stadion is one of the old ones and have a special design. The main stand has the very characteristic curl. The rest of the stadium, except the VIP area, is standing places. It’s plenty of space, but it’s also very exposed for wind and rain!
When I visited in spring 2022, Næstved was top of the table at the third tier, with clear ambitions of promotion. The sun was shining, but a strong wind made it rather chilly. Næstved was huge favorites in this one, but the visitors from Hellerup north in Copenhagen, had not travelled south just to park the bus. In fact, HIK dominated from start and found themselves three goals up after 28 minutes. The match looked dead and buried. But the hosts refused to give up. Bit by bit they worked themselves into the match and right at the end they snatched the winner. Great entertainment in Næstved!
