I don't have Gjerdåker's book in front of me now, but if he claims that the stadium was "one of several venues used for the city's main football team, Hamarkameratene" before 1936, he is wrong. Briskeby was founded by the football team Briskeby Fotballag, which in the mid-1940s merged with Hamar Arbeideridrettslag to form Hamarkameratene. And even then I don't think it's correct to call Ham-Kam "the main" team. Hamar IL was prominent for many years the team that used Hamar stadion, maybe Briskeby FL did as well. I'm not sure which field Hamar Arbeideridrettslag used. Geschichte (talk) 08:18, 23 February 2011 (UTC)

Hm, yes, I guess you are right. To be honest I was focusing mostly on the skating part, and I had just skim-read the section on football. Briskeby idrettslag was founded in 1918, and they played several places in town until they in 1934 decided to build Briskeby, which opened in 1936. Arsenikk (talk) 14:52, 23 February 2011 (UTC)
I changed Briskeby IL to Briskeby FL (Briskeby Fotballag) and redirected that to Ham-Kam. Still I'm pretty sure that Hamar IL played football there. Geschichte (talk) 20:52, 23 February 2011 (UTC)
