Nuuk Stadium before installation of artificial turf

FIFA 2-star artificial turf was installed at the stadium in July 2016.[2][3] The 2-star rating is the highest achievable rating for an artificial surface and is suitable for all UEFA competitions.[4]

Venue[edit]

The stadium can also be used as an entertainment venue. On November 2, 2007, Scottish rock band Nazareth, of Love Hurts fame, performed at the venue,[5] and on April 1, 2011, the venue was visited by Suzi Quatro.[6]
