Sports Labs Completes Testing on Fylkisvollur


On 28th August 2018 Sports Labs completed testing for FIFA Quality Pro certification at Fylkisvöllur, a stadium located in Árbær, in the eastern part of Reykjavík Iceland. The stadium is historically known for its lack of seating which often left dedicated fans competing for a good viewing spot on a nearby grassy hill. Eventually concrete stands were installed, but after the Icelandic Football Association changed its rules, Fylkisvollur failed to meet any of the new requirements. This forced Flykir and the Reykjavik City Council to reach an agreement for reconstruction in 2013. The new stadium was completed in time for the 2014 season and now includes a roof and a capacity of 1900.

A new field was installed by Pall Halldorsson of Metatron ehf in September 2018. The product installed is Polytan’s - LigaTurf RS+ CoolPlus WorldCup Edition 240 S ACS 65 EPDM ST CLS and will be used for 2 UEFA EURO u-21 Qualification matches, Iceland playing Northern Ireland and Spain on the 11th and 16th October, respectively.
