Melløs Stadion is a multi-purpose stadium in Melløs borough in Moss, Norway. It is currently used mostly for football contests and is the home stadium of Moss FK. The stadium has a capacity around 10,000 people and was opened in 1939. The current attendance record is 10,085 people in a neighbor derby against Fredrikstad FK in 2003. The stadium was used for the 1997 UEFA Women's Championship.

The venue has hosted Norway national under-21 football team matches twice, playing 0–0 against Belgium on 11 September 1979 and 0–2 against Denmark on 22 August 2007.[1] Melløs Stadion is also used for athletics. In 1983 it got rubber track as the first stadium in Østfold county, and in 1990 the national athletics championships were held there.[2]

Today Moss FK is planning to renew the stadium to become an intimate football stadium with a capacity of 8,000 people, only seated. Following these plans, the athletics parts of the stadium will be moved to a nearby football training field.[3]
