History

Plans of building a new stadium in Malmö originated in 1943 after Malmö IP was deemed too small for major events. However the city council could not agree where to build the new stadium and it was not until Sweden was awarded the FIFA World Cup 1958 that plans resurfaced. The location of the stadium was a subject of discussion as some suggested a suburban location in Jägersro while others thought that the stadium should be located centrally in the city nearby Pildammsparken, it was agreed that a central location would be better as the stadiums location was presented in the final plan in 1954.

Plans were agreed upon in 1956 and building started, on May 28, 1958 Malmö Stadion was officially opened. At the time of the stadiums inauguration it held 31,000 spectators. The stadium was designed by architects Sten Samuelsson and Fritz Jaenecke who also designed Ullevi in Gothenburg for the World Cup, as a result the two stadiums share many architectural attributes. During the World Cup the stadium hosted three matches in the first round and a quarter-final.

The stadium has served as the home ground of football club Malmö FF for most of its history. It replaced Malmö IP as Malmö FFs home ground in 1958 until it was replaced by Swedbank Stadion in 2009.

Other uses

The use of the stadium for concerts has increased in later years. Since 2007 several known artists such as Elton John, Dolly Parton, The Eagles, Kiss and Rod Stewart have performed at the stadium. Due to the lack of a retractable roof and the climate in Sweden all of these concerts have been held in the summertime, June–August in Sweden.
