The Idrettslag Stadion is a small fishing village of Henningsvær has been accessible by road, located two two small islands off Lofoten, in Norway. Henningsvær Stadium can hardly be called a football stadium; it has got no stands just a couple of meters of asphalt poured around the field and is used only for amateur football. The stadium itself provides synthetic field and floodlighting for evening games, though of course it wouldn’t suffice for TV broadcast. Atypically enough for a fishing village, the racks are the only thing preventing the ball from landing in cold sea waters surrounding the place. This tiny Norwegian sports venue grew largely in popularity on the internet around three years ago.
The Henningsvær Stadium is enough to allow the amateur club Henningsvær IL to train four groups of local boys! The stadium location is extremely awesome, located on a rocky islet surrounded by stunning views consisting of dramatic mountains and jagged peaks, open sea and sheltered bays. The real treasure of Lofoten archipelago is visiting by travelers from all over the world by appreciating the landscape. The stadium photo is viral in media even FIFA has admired the ground location.
Therefore, the viral Henningsvær Stadium pitch was laid by leveling the solid bedrock of the southernmost part of the Hellandsøya Island, resulting in a very uneven landscape, decorated by vast number of racks for drying cod. Moreover, around the perimeter of the field is a strip of asphalt that serves both as the crowd stand and as car parking. The stadium’s tiny capacity seems sufficient since the village of Henningsvær has only about 500 populations. So if you are going you probably wouldn't have much problem getting a game on this wonderful pitch. Finally, this football field in Henningsvær in the Lofoten Islands is considered one of the most amazing fields in Europe, and maybe even in the world. Source: CP
