Laugardalsvöllur is Iceland's national football stadium and the home venue for the Iceland national football team. It is in Reykjavík and seats 9,800 with a total capacity of 15,000.

Construction of the field started in 1949 and lasted until sowing for the grass itself started in 1952. A year later in 1953, construction of a new stand started. The stand had a capacity of 4,000 when completed later.
The first match was played on Laugardalsvöllur in 1957 when the Iceland men's national football team played against Norway.

In 1997, another new stand was built against the old stand, across the pitch. Constructions started a year earlier. It has a capacity of 3,500. 
Big renovation and expansion of the old stand started in 2005. After the completion in 2007, the stadium has a capacity of 9,800. Additional capacity can be added by bringing in two temporary stands seating 1,500 each, giving the stadium a maximum capacity of 15,000 but after the new requirements of FIFA for national football stadiums, this addition method has been forbidden. 
The largest attendance for a football match ever seen by Laugardalsvöllur was 20,204 in 2004 in a friendly match between Iceland and Italy. Biggest attendance ever seen was at concert in 2007, about 25,000.

The stadium comprises two big stands facing each other. West Stand is the main stand and the larger one. It is the only stand to hold all the facilities needed for the stadium, excluding stadium seating. For the purpose of football matches and other competitions, the stand has 4 Changing rooms for players (mainly) and 2 other for referees. Then there are two other rooms for football matches and athletics tournaments administration.

There has been some serious plans to renovate and expand Laugardalsvöllur since Iceland men's national football team reached play-off for the 2014 FIFA World Cup back in 2013. If built, the new national football stadium of Iceland is likely to have a capacity of 20,000 or more.
