TRE-FOR Park (originally Odense Stadion) is a football stadium and the home ground of Odense Boldklub .It has a capacity of 15,633.

Until 3 May 2010, the stadium was known as Fionia Park.

The stadium consists of 4 stands:

  • Two long-side stands:
  • Two end stands:
    • The Fyens Stiftstidende (popular known as "Stiften") home supporters stand (3496 seats (at league games the capacity is improved because of a standing-section))
    • The Nordea stand (3295 seats) away stand

In addition to this there are 1800 standing places (1000 home team – 800 away team), 24 handicap places and 45 press seats.

The "Fyens Stiftstidende" stand belongs to the fans of the hometeam, OB. The fan fraction called Odense Ultras (in spite of the name non-violent) is working hard to get all seatings removed as they believe this will enhance the spirit and experience for the fans[citation needed].

It is considered among the top football stadiums in Denmark and fully complies with the requirements of UEFA.

Two concerts have been held at the venue, Elton John 24 June 2007, and Roger Waters during his The Dark Side of the Moon Live tour on 13 May 2008.
