Here are some extra shots of the Brann Stadion, to supplement the story about my Brann Bergen shirt. Brann Stadion is a vintage stadium, built in 1919. It has undergone many renovations through the years, so it is not quite as historic as the old Stockholm Olympic Stadium but it is still a marvel to see a stadium defying the years. The current capacity is 17,686 although the record attendance came in 1961 when ticket polices weren’t quite as stringent. The stadium is a forty-five minute walk–three kilometers–from the city center. Of course, if you’re not up for that, there is a tram from near the main street of Bergen that will take you there in less than ten minutes.
