Eidi Stadium, Faroe Islands

Our previous post Lake Sørvágsvatn, the biggest lake of of the Faroe Islands. Eidi Stadium is located just a few meters from the Atlantic Ocean, the venue for matches of semi-professional football team of the Faroe Islands. There is only a small amount of standing room for fans and balls often fly directly into the sea. The stadium is located in Eidi - town in the north-western tip of Eysturoy. Its name means "isthmus" in the Faroese language. The city has a population of 669 inhabitants. In the center of the village from 1881 there is a large stone church, which was built in connection with the centenary of the village.

In the hills above Toftir is the football stadium, constructed especially for international football competitions. Beyond the stadium further up in the hills is the beautiful lake, Toftavatn. The view from on top affords a good view towards Tórshavn and the surrounding countryside.
