The Matchday Experience
Away fans (Bortesupportere) are housed within sections G and H within the south stand as per the above seating plan. Visiting supporters are usually allocated 560 seats per match, and tickets cost 200 NOK for adults.
FK Haugesund’s fan shop is located within the northern goa-end which is known as the Kraft Tribune. It’s usually open on matchdays from three hours before kick-off and for 30 minutes after the full time whistle only – never during the week barring special occasions.
It seems very unlikely that tours of the facilities at Haugesund Stadion are available to the general public as there isn’t reallly much to see!
Tickets to see FK Haugesund can either be purchased online from the official website or from the ticket-booths at the stadium just before kick-off. Prices start from 125 NOK for adults, but usually average out at around 200 NOK for a semi-decent seat.
Haugesund Stadion is located centrally within the town just beyond the main road which runs parallel with the coast line.
The stadium’s address for satnav is as follows:
- Karmsundgaten 169, 5522 Haugesund, Norway
There appears to be limited parking available at the stadium however we’re unsure as to whether or not it can be used on matchdays.
The town of Haugesund lacks its own train station as Rogaland County lacks railway infrastructure due to the geographical nature of the Norway.
