Tórsvøllur is a football stadium on the sport site of Gundadalur in Tórshavn, Faroe Islands. The stadium holds 6,040 people, and was built in 1999 to become the country's national stadium to provide a grass surface on which international football matches could be played. Previously, the Faroe Islands national team played its home matches in the town of Toftir at Svangaskarð stadium.

In August 2011 floodlights were introduced; these were first officially used for the football match between Faroe Islands and Italy on 2 September 2011.

A total renovation of the stadium, the first since it was built, is expected to be completed by late 2017.
