Ullevi Stadium

Sometimes referred to as Nya Ullevi (New Ullevi), the Ullevi Stadium was built for use during World Cup 1958. Located in Gothenburg, it is a multi-purpose sports venue. As well as hosting some of Sweden's International football matches, it has been used for sports such as athletics, ice hockey and boxing as well as for concerts, such as for David Bowie and Foo Fighters. Currently, it is the largest football stadium in the nordic region.

The Ullevi Stadium hosted seven matches during World Cup 1958. Four of these were Group D games, including a play-off. The others were a quarter-final, a semi-final and the third place match between France and West Germany.
