Mjøndalen IF

Isachesen Stadion is a Norwegian football ground located in Mjøndalen, Nedre Eiker. Previously known as both Nedre Eiker Stadion after the local area and Mjøndalen Arena after the resident football team, the 4,350 capacity ground first opened in 4,350.

Stadium Guide

History

At the start of the 2011/2012 season the playing surface was converted from natural grass into a form of artificial turf in order to decrease maintenance costs and to minimise disruptions to the footballing calender as a result of the cold Norwegian climate.

The most recent renovations at Nedre Eiker Stadion occurred on the back of Mjøndalen’s promotion to the Tippeligaen in 2015 after a 3rd place finish in the Norwegian First Division. Additional seating was installed to increase the capacity to 4,350 and the stadium’s naming rights were sold to the building contractor, Isachsen Gruppen.

To date the record attendance sits at 15,300 – a record which is unlikely to ever be beaten as Mjøndalen’s glory years of European Football were very much in the 1960s to the 1980s.
