Råsunda Fotbollstadion, also Råsundastadion, Råsunda Stadium or just Råsunda, is a Swedishmarker national football stadium. It is located in Solna Municipalitymarker in Metropolitan Stockholm. It was opened in 1937 although there had already existed stadiums at the site; the earliest opened in 1910. Råsunda has a capacity of 35,000–36,608 depending on usage. The stadium is the home stadium for AIK, and is used for many derbies between Stockholm clubs. It also hosts the headquarters of the Swedish Football Association, and stages 75% of the home matches of the national football team each year, with most other matches being played at Ullevimarker in Gothenburgmarker. These two stadiums are UEFA 4-star rated football stadiums .

The record attendance is 52,943 and was set 26 September 1965, when Sweden played West Germany.

Råsunda is the first of two stadiums to have hosted the World Cup finals for both men and women. It hosted the men's final in the 1958 World Cup and the women's final in the 1995 Women's World Cup. The other stadium with this honor is the Rose Bowlmarker in Pasadena, Californiamarker, USAmarker (men in 1994 World Cup, women in 1999 Women's World Cup).

Råsunda is also the name of a large part of Solna.

On April 1 2006 the Swedish Football Association announced a plan to switch to a newly built stadium in Solna. The new arena will be completed and ready for sporting events at 2011, and by then Råsunda Stadium is to be demolished. The new stadium will have a capacity for 50,000 spectators.
