Sweden National Football Team Home Stadium

Since 2012, the Swedish national stadium is Friends Arena, replacing the demolished Råsunda Fotbollsstadion. According to FIFA, Råsunda Stadion was a classic stadium, one of only two stadiums in the world, the other being the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, California, which hosted the men’s and women’s World Cup final (final of the 1958 FIFA World Cup and the 1995 FIFA Women’s World Cup).

Råsunda Stadium opened on September 18, 1910, and had a capacity of only 2,000, most of them standing. The Råsunda Stadium and the Valhalla Stadium in Gothenburg were the first grass soccer fields used for Swedish football. The stadium was expanded in 1937, to a capacity of 40,000 people.
