History of Lerkendal Stadium
The original Lerkendal Stadium pales in comparison to today's facilities. Inaugurated by the city of Trondheim in 1947, the all-purpose stadium consisted of a grass field, two gravel fields, two tennis courts, two handball courts and a running track.
Over the following several decades, as Rosenborg’s status developed, Lerkdenal stadium was steadily improved. But by the 1990s, when Rosenborg was well and truly a class European club, the Lerkendal Stadium still didn’t have the wow-factor reflective of the club.
In 2000, Rosenborg bought the stadium from Trondheim city for a complete overhaul, costing over 250 million NOK. In October 2002, Rosenborg unveiled its mighty playing field to the world - the all-new Lerkendal Stadium.
With a current capacity for 21,116 spectators and future plans for additional improvements, the Lerkendal Stadium truly is a world stage.
