History

Until 2006 Alfheim Stadium surprisingly used the combination of artificial turf and under-soil heating, however during the course of the summer which saw Germany host the World Cup, a more durable artificial playing surface was installed.

The record attendance to date was set on the 15th August 1990 in a quarter final match of the Norwegian Cup. A reported 10,225 supporters saw Tromsø IL lost to eventual Champions Rosenborg BK.
