Designed by architect Torben Grut, Stockholms Stadion was opened in 1912, its original use was as a venue for the 1912 Olympic Games. At the 1912 Games, it hosted the athletics, some of the equestrian, some of the football, gymnastics, the running part of the modern pentathlon, tug of war, and wrestling events. The stadium also hosted the equestrian competitions in the 1956 Olympics due to Australia´s quarantine´s rules. Stockholms Stadion has hosted many athletics competitions and with a total of 83, Stockholms Stadion has seen more athletics world records broken than any other stadium in the world. As you can see in the pictures below the ground is unique and one of the most beautiful stadiums in the world. The stadium is classified as a historical building and can´t be modernized.

 

Between 1936 and (June) 2013 Djurgården played at Stockholms Stadion but new ground rules meant the club needed a new home. In 2012 it was decided Djurgården would move to the new Stockholmsarenan (later renamed Tele2 Arena) being built next to Globen. Stockholms Stadion will remain as an athletics stadium and will host matches for some of Djurgården´s youth teams.
