Match: Elfsborg - Malmö FF 3-1 (Allsvenskan)

Attendance: 9 304

 

Borås two major football teams, Elfsborg and Norrby, nowadays both play at Borås Arena. Borås Arena, with a capacity of 16 900, was opened in 2005 and replaced Ryavallen as the major football ground in Borås. As you can see below Ryavallen and Borås Arena are situated right next to each other. Ryavallen was opened in 1941 and hosted mostly athletics and football. In its final years Ryavallen had a capacity of around 17 000 but since the stand on the far side was demolished in 2005 the capacity is around 8 000 nowdays. In the 1958 World Cup two matches were played here but as the ground was ageing Borås city council made the decision to build a new purpose built stadium for football.

Pictures from Ryavallen can be found at the Norrby page
