Fana stadion is a multi-use stadium at Rådal in the borough of Fana in Bergen, Norway.

Used for football matches, it is the home ground of Second Division team Fana IL.

It also has a rubber track for track and field meets, and the stadium most notably hosted the 2004 Bergen Bislett Games. Then, a new world record in the women's 5000 metres was set by Elvan Abeylegesse. The stadium is also home to a world junior record, namely 83.87 metres by Andreas Thorkildsen in the men's javelin throw (June 2001).[1] The venue hosted the Norwegian Athletics Championships in 1969, 1975, 1991 and 2005.[2]
