Hjørring Stadium (Danish: Hjørring Stadion) is a multi-purpose stadium in Hjørring, Denmark. It is known as Nord Energi Arena for sponsorship reasons. It is currently used mostly for football matches and is the home stadium of Fortuna Hjørring and Vendsyssel FF. The stadium currently has a maximum capacity of 5000 people. The attendance record was set in 1973 in a match in 3. division between Hjørring IF and Frederikshavn fi.

New Stadium[edit]

In September 2011 it was decided that Hjørring should have a new stadium, linked to the Park Vendia which would be completed in 2013. [1]

The plan, however, changed when Hjørring came into trouble in terms of the economy to the construction of the new stadium.[2]

Renovation[edit]

On May 29, 2013 Hjørring City Council decided to renovate the old stadium.[3] The renovation includes a new and lasting main stand with two sports centers integrated in the back of it. The new main stand with sponsor lounge will accommodate 500 seats under roof.

Opposite the main stand is a small terrace with a capacity of around 1500 people. In order to optimize the intimacy and match experience the fences and advertising boards in both ends were placed closer to the pitch than before.

There is also a new lighting system of 1000 lux. The renovation was completed in the summer 2015.[4][5]

In the summer of 2018 Vendsyssel FF earned a promotion to the Superliga. To be eligible to play in the highest tier, the stadium needs a total capacity of at least 10,000 people and at least 3,000 seats.
