Behrn Arena

Behrn Arena, mostly known by its previous name Eyravallen, is a football stadium in Örebro, Sweden and home stadium for Örebro SK in Swedish top flight Allsvenskan. The stadium holds 14,500 people and was built in 1923. The stadium has been developed during the last couple of years.

The attendance record at the arena was against the local rival of Degerfors IF having 20 066 people watching the game 8 June 1961.[1]

The stadium's grass is astroturf since 2003, and Örebro was the first top-flight club in Sweden to have that playing surface. This was in part due to the harsher winters in Örebro compared to coastal and further southern areas.
