- Games of Vejle BK
The Jokri Park ( formerly Vejle Stadium ) is a football stadium in the Danish city of Vejle in the eponymous municipality in eastern Jutland. The Vejle BK receives his opponents to the home games here.
The old stadium
In 1922 began the construction of a stadium in Nørreskoven in Vejle. It consisted of an earthen wall around the game field. In addition there was a clubhouse. The first grandstand was awarded the stadium in 1939, the wooden structure was burning but from 1954 and was replaced by a smaller grandstand. 1960 erected a floodlight system. In the Super League game against Vejle BK Brøndby IF in 1995 a railing broke in block A; while 28 people were injured. On November 4, 2007, the last game of Vejle BK took place in the stadium. 6,868 spectators Vejle BK Frem won against København 3-1. The women's team and the other teams of Vejle BK still use the old stadium.
The new stadium
Long before plans were for a conversion or new construction of Vejle Stadium. Finally, it was decided in 2004 for a new building right next to the old venue. Construction began in the fall of 2006. On March 9, 2008 we celebrated the opening with the Cup quarter-finals Vejle BK against FC Midtjylland (1:2). The building consists of four covered grandstands with a total of 10,418 seats; of which about 7,500 seats. Inside the stadium, two video scoreboards are installed. Under the playing field a soil heating is installed. The sports facility meets the safety requirements of UEFA; only the floodlights with 1,000 lux is too weak dimensioned. In the stadium, there are two sponsors lounges and 12 VIP boxes. In the corner of the North Stand are office buildings, which are leased to finance investment.
The Municipality of Vejle promised in 2008 to 7.5 million Danish crowns the naming rights until 2010. In March 2010 it was announced that the naming rights of the stadium was sold for the next five years to the Jokri A / S. Now, the venue of the Vejle BK named Jokri Park.
