Godthåbhallen is a handball stadium in Nuuk, Greenland. It is the home of the Greenland national handball team. The stadium has a capacity of 1,000 people.[1]

The stadium was built in 1961,[2] and is a multi-purpose venue, housing events ranging from concerts[3] to bingo to zumba and bodytoning.[4] The stadium used to be the venue of choice for bigger artists, but since the 2002 completion of Nuuk Stadium, home of the Nuuk football team, all major artists—most recently[when?] Suzi Quatro[5]--rather utilize the newer, spacier venue. Godthåbhallen is located merely 400 meters from Nuuk Stadium. An ice skating arena which is open to the public is right outside the hall.
