Located in Oslo, the capital city of Norway, Ullevaal Stadion is mainly used by the national team of the country. The stadium is capable of hosting around 28,000 people. It is located close to the Ullevål Stadion Station.

The stadium was constructed in 1926, and right away it became the home ground of FK Lyn, a football club that was founded in 1896. At that time, it was also used by other local football teams for their games and training. This lasted until 2009 until the main tenant was replaced by Vålerenga Football. The later team used the ground until 2017.

In 1927, the stadium hosted its first international match. The highest attendance of 35,495 was noted at the stadium in 1935 during the match between Sweden and Norway. It has also been a venue for the Norwegian Football Cup finals since 1948.

There are several stands, including the Japp Stand that was constructed in the stadium in 1967. Another renovation took place in 1985, which resulted in the completion of the stand on the west site. In five years, two more stands, including East and North were also constructed. Finally, the South Stand was built at the stadium in 1998.

Twice this venue has been chosen for the UEFA European Women’s Championship — the first time in 1987, and the second time in 1997.
