Viljandi linnastaadion is a multi-purpose stadium in Viljandi, Estonia. It is used mostly for football matches and hosts the matches of FC Viljandi. The stadium has 1,006 seats of which 400 are under the roof.

History[edit]

The building of the stadium started in 1928, when the mayor of Viljandi was August Maramaa. Because of the downturn in economy, the building was not completed before World War II.

Previous renovation before 2009 was done in the beginning of the 1980s. After that reconstruction, the stadium could hold up to 2,506 people.[citation needed]
