Ryavallen

Located in Borås, Sweden, Ryavallen is a multi-purpose stadium. Built in 1904, it was home ground for football team IF Elfsborg. After they left in 2004, the north stand was converted to an indoor athletics hall and the venue is now used mainly for athletics.

Two matches were hosted by Ryavallen during the 1958 World Cup. Both were Group 4 games, involving England, Austria and the Soviet Union.
