Tønsberg Gressbane Stadium
• The stadium first opened in 1937 and was rebuilt in 2003. It accommodated a record 16,000 crowd in 1958 for a game between Eik-Tønsberg and Fredrikstad.
• In 2001 the venue became home to FK Tønsberg, an umbrella team of 20 local clubs who took Eik-Tønsberg's place in Norway's third tier. They eventually won promotion but returned after a season and were relegated to the fourth flight last season.
• The stadium will host Norway's 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup qualifier against Portugal on 7 May.
