Brann Stadion has been the home ground of Norwegian Premier League team SK Brann since 1919, and unsurprisingly today’s 17,686 capacity stadiums bears little resemblance to the once which first opened just under 100 years ago. Located in the city of Bergen, the Brann Stadion is approximately 3km south of the city centre.
The record attendance to date was set on 1st October 1961 when a reported 24,800 crammed into the stadium to see Brann take on Fredrikstad NM
in the semi-final of the Norwegian Cup.

Bergen Railway Station is located in the city centre and thus isn’t very practical for those looking to travel to Brann Stadium.
You can travel to the stadium via the light railway which is basically a single-track tram. You can get on from places in the city centre such as Byparken or Bystasjonen although the way to the Brann Stadion stop.
Bergen International Airport is located within Flesland less than 20 km from the city centre. Upon landing you can catch one of the numerous shuttle buses to the city centre.
There aren’t any places to stay within the area of Minde where Brann Stadium is situated which means you will have to look to the harbour area for most of Bergen’s accommodation options. Three well-priced options are Thon Hotel, Radisson Blu, and the no thrills basic hotel Bergen.
