It was finished on 30 July 1922 and was then named Halmstads Idrottsplats (eng: Halmstads Sports Ground), it was opened by HRH The Crown Prince of Sweden Gustaf Adolf, later king of Sweden, 12 000 people had been allowed entrance to see the opening, several thousands more had gathered outside the fence and on Galgberget. In August 1922 the name of the arena changed to Örjans Vall after a medieval hospital by the name of S:t Örjans that had earlier been on the same location. On 3 September 1922 the first football (soccer) game was played there. Örjans Vall has been used for many different sports over the years, the football field was surrounded by running tracks, until the 1980s, and was the main site for the local athletic clubs. In the winter of 1956, due to very cold weather, the running tracks were covered with water freezing into a skating rink, Sigvard "Sigge" Ericsson, who had won one gold and one silver medal in the recent 1956 winter olympic, participated. In 1972 the present day main-stand and scoreboard was completed, replacing the original wooden constructions from 1922.

In September 2008 a decision to build a new stadium was reached by the local authorities, the new stadium would be placed at Sannarps recreation ground and Örjans Vall will be demolished and replaced by apartments, the new arena is planned to be complete 2012[9], however on May 5, 2009 it was announced that there would not be a new arena as the Alliance city council announced its budget proposition[10].
