The Matchday Experience

Away Fans

Away fans (Bortasupportrar) are housed within the greyed out sections R and Q as per the above seating plan with tickets costing 120 SEK. The visiting supporters can share this uncovered goal-end with the home supporters but more often than not have it to themselves.

Best Pubs

Club Shop

There are four IFK souvenir shops located more or less within every stand of Stadion Nya Parken. As they usually only open on matchdays you may wish to visit IFK Norrköping’s online store instead.

Stadium Tour

It doesn’t appear as if guided tours are available of either the wider Idrottsparken or specifically Nya Parken Stadion.

Ticket Prices

Tickets to see IFK Norrköping can either be purchased online from the official website or in person from the ticket offices around the stadium which open on matchdays a few hours before kick-off.

Standard Ticket Prices

  • Western (A, B, C, D, E): 220 SEK
  • East (K, L, M, N, O): 200 SEK
  • Family Grandstand (S, T): 120-150 SEK
  • Standing (F, G, H): 120 SEK

Be advised that for Category 1 games against the highest-profile opposition ticket prices increase by 30 crowns.

Matchday Travel

Nya Parken Stadium is located fairly centrally within Norrköping approximately 1.6 km west of the down town area.

Exterior of Nya Parken Stadium

The walk from the city centre will likely take Football Trippers anywhere between 10-20 minutes depending on your starting point.

Driving

The stadium’s address for satnav is as follows:

  • Ektorpsgatan 1, 603 37 Norrköping, Sweden

Car Parks

There appears to be a few small parking areas at the stadium but nothing which suggests IFK Norrköping would actively encourage driving to the ground on matchday.

Train

Norrköping Centralstation forms part of the Southern Main Line which connects Katrineholm in the east to Malmö in the south-west. It’s just under 2.0 km from Nya Parken football stadium.

Tram

You can catch tram 3 to the stops at either Väster Tull or Strömbacken which are both within a five minute walking distance of the ground.

Alternatively you could catch bus services to both of these stops such as the number 115 and 119 from central.

Airports

Norrköping Airport 5 km to the east of the city centre has a number of domestic and a limited number international flights each day. Upon landing you can catch a coach service into the city within 10-15 minutes.

Hotels

Whilst there a few accommodation options west of the stadium you can find similar value back within the city centre where the location is much better. Three well priced places to stay which are three stars appear to be the Best Western Princess Hotel, Hotell Drott and Hotel Centric.
