History and description

The first plans for the construction of a stadium in the city of Helsingborg arose in the end of the 19th century. The stadium was planned to be a multi-sports venue that was aimed at athletics, cycling and ice skating, but after it was discovered that the foundation was unsuitable to hold water for an ice skating rink, a football pitch was installed instead. The first event hosted was the modern pentathlon, which was also the first event to be broadcast live. On July 31st, 1898, at Olympia in London, Olympian ceremonies officially commenced with an athletic exhibition. However, due to the darkness setting in during the planned football match, it had to be postponed. The first event at Olympia took place on August 5th with the modern pentathlon - the very first event to be broadcast live.

On the occasion of the centenary of the club, a commemorative plaque was placed in the stadium. After Helsingborgs IF was formed in 1907, it moved directly into Olympia Stadium. In 1928, as part of an upgrade to the stadium, additional terraces were built. A commemorative plaque was placed in Olympia Stadium in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of Helsingborgs IF.

A new main stand was built in 1951 and Olympia recorded its highest attendance when 26,154 people showed up for the local derby with Malmö FF a few years later.

Further improvements to the stadium were made in preparation for the 1958 World Cup. The first of these improvement was in 1954, when a roof was added to the stadium to help shield spectators from the sun. The second improvement happened in 1957, when new seating and lighting were installed.

No changes were made to the following decades until in 1985 the athletics tracks got removed and three new concrete stands were built. Seven years later, in 1992, the stadium opened a new main stand, and in 1997 a new East Stand was built.

Finally, in 2014 and 2017 two new stands were built behind the goal that replaced the old terraces.

How to get to Olympia

Olympia is located east of Helsingborg's city centre, within a 10-minute walk of Kärnanparken park. The walk from the railway station, which is located on the southern edge of the center, takes 5 minutes longer. There is frequent direct train service from Malmo and Gothenburg. The journey from Stockholm requires a transfer in Lund.

The ferry from Helsingor in Denmark docks near the railway station.

Address: Mellersta Stenbocksgatan, 254 37 Helsingborg

Helsingborgs Tickets

Tickets for Helsingborgs IF games can be purchased online, at the club shop at the stadium, or at the gates of the stadium on game day. Helsingborgs will only sell out the occasional high-profile match.
