Interesting facts about this location
Tammela Stadion is a football stadium in Tampere, Finland. It is currently used mostly for football matches. The stadium holds 5,040 people and was built in 1931. It is the home stadium for the second division teams TPV and Ilves. The stadium's history began in 1926 when the city council made a decision of building a football field in Tammela. Constructions, however, advanced rather slowly due to lack of funds. The situation worsened during a recession in the late 1920s and early 1930s.
