Malmö Stadion

Frequently referred to simply as Stadion, Malmö Stadion is a multi-purpose stadium. It was home ground for Malmö FF until 2009, when the team moved to the brand new Swedbank Stadion. As well as football, the venue has been used to host concerts for artist, including Ozzy Osbourne, The Eagles and Rod Stewart. Planned to be replaced with a swimming pool, the stadium is set to be demolished.
