SR-Bank Arena History
Viking Stadium first opened on 1st May 2004 after a construction period of approximately 17 months. Designed by NBBJ Design and LINK signatur AS, the stadium cost a total of 210 million NOK to build however the land on which it was built was gifted to Viking FK by the local council which effectively wiped off 50 million NOK from the total building cost.
The record attendance of 16,600 was set on 24th June during the 2007 Tippeligaen season in a match against occasional title rivals Brann. With plans to eventually expand the ground to 22,000 this record could well be beaten in the long term, however as of 2012 further expansion has not been found to be viable.
