Sandnes Idrettspark is a multi-purpose stadium in Sandnes, Rogaland, Norway. It is currently used mostly for track and field meets and football matches, and is the home ground of Sandnes Ulf. The stadium's capacity is 4,969 (4,109 seats).

The venue hosted the Norwegian Athletics Championships in 1986, 2002 and 2010.[2] In August 2009, a new floodlight system with a capacity of 1,400 lux was installed.[3] In a 2012 survey carried out by the Norwegian Players' Association among away-team captains, Sandnes Idrettspark was ranked forth-worst amongst league stadiums, with a score of 2.40 on a scale from one to five.[4]

The seats currently mounted on the stadium's north stand were donated from the old Stavanger stadion main stand, which was demolished in 2004.
