Gamla Ullevi, Gothenburg

The home of GAIS Göteborg, IFK Göteborg and Örgryte IS, the Gamla Ullevi replaced its predecessor of the same name and opened in 2009.

Capacity: 16,700
Opened: 2009

• Built to replace a stadium of the same name, the Gamla Ullevi is the home to GAIS Göteborg, IFK Göteborg and Örgryte IS and gets its name from the Nordic god Ull, as does the city's larger Ullevi stadium (which was constructed for the 1958 FIFA World Cup).

• The Gamla Ullevi was a venue for the 2009 UEFA European Under-21 Championship and adopted as the home of the Sweden women's team. It also stages the largest youth tournament in the world, the Gothia Cup.

• IFK are the most successful of the three tenants, winning the UEFA Cup in 1982 and 1987, plus 18 Swedish titles. GAIS have four championships and ÖiS – the oldest club in the country, having been founded in 1887 – have 12 titles but only one in the last century.

• The stadium will be the setting for three UEFA Women's EURO 2013 Group A games and a semi-final.

• Sweden's second city with 500,000 residents, Gothenburg is on the south-west coast and has a reputation for holding international cultural and entertainment events.
