The Marienlyst Stadium is a football and Bandystadion in the Norwegian town and commune Drammen. Drammen is located in the south of Norway in Buskerud Fylke. Since 1967, the local Tippeligaen team Strømsgodset IF uses the venue opened in 1924. In addition, the two clubs unterklassigen Drafn SBK and SBK Skiold play their football games. In addition, the stadium is the home of the sport bandy team by Drammen Bandy. Bandy is a precursor of ice hockey; is played with a ball. The stadium is also known as Gamle Gress ( German Old grass) and has about 7500 seats. Located right next to the plant, the multi-purpose hall Drammenshallen with about 5,000 seats.
In the winter of 1971/72 a new grandstand was built on the long side of the square. In 1996, we renewed the 67 years old field grass. 2001/ 02 torn down the old wooden grandstand and built a new grandstand. In June 2007, the City Council of Drammen decided to rebuild the stadium.
In November 2007, we began to remove the natural grass of the stadium and for an artificial turf was laid. About the year will be held football matches. In the winter, can the 106 × 68 meter playing area transformed into an ice rink; but the lawn is also heated. Under the artificial grass 82 km pipeline have been laid. There were 3,000 m3 excavated soil and replenished with the same amount of expanded clay. On a insulating layer of synthetic grass is then laid. The year will be held football matches and in the winter will be played on the ice Bandy.
There were plans to build a new stadium. In June 2009, the plans were ready. However, the club and the city could not agree on the financing of the project and so for this project came in November of the year off. The city offered funding to the Marienlyst Stadium adapt to the requirements of the Norwegian Association of NFF.
