History and description
Nature Energy Park, originally called Odense Stadion, opened in 1941 and stayed relatively unchanged until the 1990s.
However, with the successes of the club in the early 1990s, it became increasingly clear that the club needed more modern facilities to be able to compete successfully. A first step was the conversion of standing areas into seats, but soon after was decided to redevelop the stadium altogether.
Works began in 1996, and by September 1997 three of the four stands had been rebuilt. Two months later the redevelopment was completed with the reconstruction of a new main stand.
The main stand underwent a next renovation in 2004, which mainly focused on increasing the VIP facilities.
In 2005 the club sold the naming rights of the stadium to Fiona Bank, resulting in the new name Fiona Park. Five years later the name changed again after energy group TRE-FOR bought the naming rights as part of a five-year sponsorship deal. This deal lasted until 2016, when the stadium changed name to EWII Park for two years, which was followed by a new deal with Nature Energy.
