Before the game & how to get to the arena:
If you arrive from abroad: in Stockholm you can travel north to Sundsvall by car (4-5 hours, 400 km), by high speed train (3 hours and 15 minutes) or by bus (5 hours) or by plane (45-50 minutes). The Sundsvall/Timrå airport, is located 30 km north from Sundsvall. Buses are for sure the cheapest alternative but also the slowest option.
The stadium (built 2001-2002) has a capacity to serve 8500 attendants and it is a visible landmark in the heart of Sundsvall.
The club was founded in 1903 and celebrated its 100th anniversary in August 2003.
We are still waiting for our first championships title. Best result so far is: 5th, in 1988, and 7th, in 2004. GIF Sundsvall hasn’t won any cup titles yet.
In July 2004 the arena was equipped with artificial grass. The arena can also be used for conserts. The all time record event so far in the history of Sundsvall was being held in August 2004. 24 000 (!) attended the consert with the band Gyllene Tider. (Per Gessle from Roxette).
The record for a football game is from 1961 when 16 507 visited the arena to see GIF play Högadal. The capacity today is around 8 500.
