Description

Tórsvøllur is located in Tórshavn, the capital city of Faroe Islands. It was constructed in 1999 for the games of the national football team as well as international matches. After the opening ceremony that took place in 2000, it became the second national stadium in the Islands. The playing surface features natural grass. The current official total capacity of the stadium is approximately 6,000 people; however, according to some sources of information, it is really capable of hosting around 7,000 people.

Before the stadium was constructed, the national team had to play at Svangaskarð stadium located in Toftir. The first international match took place on the ground in 2011. It was the game between the Italian national team and the national team of Faroe Islands. In the same year, there were floodlights installed in the stadium.

In 2009, there were some renovations conducted, such as constructing a new stand with different facilities as well as a seating section placed behind one of the goals. Another new stand was constructed in 2014.

During the major renovation, it was planned to add lots of changes to the ground. All of the works were expected to be completed by the end of 2017.
