Lekendal Stadium, Trondheim
If you are interested in football you might not know so many norwegian teams, but Rosenborg is a team you must have heard about. And also their legendary coach Nils Arne Eggen, who quit in 2002. (Allthough I heard he would return now (again))
It's not easy for me to write this next part as I am from Oslo and my team is Vålenga... ;) But Rosenborg is by far the best norwegian team (argh!). In 2004 they won the league for the 13th year in a row! (But my team was SOOO close! The two teams had just as many points, but Rosenborg won because they had scored more goals. Grrrr!!!)
Rosenborg have been playing Champions League many times, and have made great results (considering the fact that Norway (unfortunately) is not one of the top footballcountrys in the world).
Lerkendal Stadium is their own playground and if there is a match when you are here, you should try to see it if you like football. The first provisoric stadium was built in 1947 and have been renovated a few times, last in 2002. This is one of the biggest and most modern stadiums in the country (and then you might understand why I was a bit overwhelmed by Nou Camp stadium in Barcelona... ;).
Lekendal Stadium is the second biggest stadium in Norway,with a capacity around 30 000 at it's limits. In a couple of years Lerkendal will be totally rebuilt. When finished a private hospital and a hotel will be included.
If you're in Trondheim around fall,you can see Rosenborg beat the crap out of AC Milan,Real Madrid,Bayern Munich and other teams in the Champions League. Åh Rosenborg,åh Rosenborg,åheiåheiåhåååå!!!!!
