About Telia Parken

Telia Parken is located in the Indre Østerbro district of Copenhagen, Denmark, built from 1990-1992. It is the home ground of F.C. Copenhagen and the Danish national football team. On the first of September 1992, the new national stadium known as Parken was inaugurated. Parken is also used as a concert venue, and hosted the Eurovision Song Contest 2001. As a direct consequence, a retractable roof was applied to the existing structure to make Parken a more useful venue.

“It’s been a very good learning experience to hear from other countries and other clubs, so we are very happy with the first part of the workshop. It was nice to be able to walk around in the stadium and see what the presentations are showing, you see that in real life afterwards.”
