Here are some extra shots of the new Viking Stadion, to supplement the story about my Viking FK shirt. This modern stadium was built in 2004 to replace the old Stavanger Stadium. The seating capacity is 16,300 although the record attendance is 16,600, reached during a match against fellow Tippeligaen stalwarts Brann Bergen. The stadium is easily accessed from Stavanger’s central station via the Jæren Commuter Rail by disembarking at the Jåttåvågen Station–just over seven kilometers from the center of Stavanger.
My thanks to Morten and everyone at Viking FK for allowing me these pictures.
