Brann Stadion is owned by the club. It was built in 1919.
Directions to the stadium:
The local bus company Tide offers a number of services to the ground. Brann Stadion is located approximately four kilometres south of the city centre. The best alternative is the city tram (Bybanen) passing Brann Stadion both from the south (from Lagunen) and the city centre (from Byparken). The station to leave the tram is called Brann Stadion.
If you are arriving directly from the airport, some of the airport shuttle buses are an easy way to get to the Stadium. The only other options from the airport is by taxi or a car. By car it takes 25 minutes if there's no heavy traffic. The city tram will soon open a line from the airport passing at Brann Stadion.

The history of the stadium
Brann Stadion is owned by the club. It was built in 1919, but has since been modernized several times. A new stand was erected in 2006 and opened in May 2007. The new main stand was finished only days before the opening of the 2007 season.
Brann Stadion has hosted 17 Norwegian international fixtures since 1933, the first against Wales in a 1-2 defeat. Since then Norway has not lost in Bergen, and has won twelve of the seventeen international fixtures at Brann Stadion.
The current capacity is 17.686, with 16.186 seats, which leaves the capacity for European football at 16.186. Plans are made to further modernize the stadium, especially the south stand which are old and not the same standard as the fans demand and deserve.
The pitch is natural grass.
