Olé!  

Yours truly

With kind assistance from the crew mounting the commercial banners I got a chance to peek inside prior to the very last games. The arena was in use between 1937 and 2012 and the home of the Solna soccer team AIK. Originally a rather quaint sports field it was extended and added on to several times during its long life. The arena was completely demolished during 2013.

While I'm no soccer aficionado the Råsunda arena is an icon in its own right. The way it was constructed in small steps throughout its lifetime makes it a fascinating structure, especially from the inside where traces of these steps were still visible.
