Matchday Travel

The football ground is located within Sandnes Idrettspark approximately 1.2 km north-west of the city centre where the Sentrum station is located.

Sandnes Idrettspark Entrance

For most Football Tripper you’re looking at a walk of around 10 minutes to the ground. Mostly you’ll be following “Tronesgeilen” northwards.

Driving

The stadium’s address for satnav is as follows:

  • Jønningsheiveien 40, 4316 Sandnes, Norway

Car Parks

There is a modest sized car park next to the training pitch however whether or not it’s accessible to the general public on matchdays is unclear.

Train

The city is served by two railway stations which are less than 650 metres apart. As the name implies Sandnes Sentrum is the more centrally located of the two, with Sandnes Station the original and main one of the city before being replaced by Sentrum in 1996.

Airports

The closest major airport is Stavanger International in Sola which is approximately 12 km north-west of the municipality of Sandnes. It is Norway’s third largest airport in terms of passengers numbers, and is served by a decent range of airlines.

Hotels

The best priced option appears to be Hotel Sverre which is three stars and located just outside central station. The other options such as Quality Hotel and Gamlaværket AS are all at least four stars and subsequently much more expensive.
