Sandnes Stadion is a multi-purpose stadium located in Sandnes, Rogaland, Norway. It is a part of Sandnes Idrettspark and is currently used mostly for track and field meets and football matches, and is the home ground of Sandnes Ulf. The stadium's capacity is 4,969 (4,109 seats).

The venue hosted the Norwegian Athletics Championships in 1986, 2002, 2010 and 2017.[2] In August 2009, a new floodlight system with a capacity of 1,400 lux was installed.[3] In a 2012 survey carried out by the Norwegian Players' Association among away-team captains, Sandnes Idrettspark was ranked fourth-worst amongst league stadiums, with a score of 2.40 on a scale from one to five.[4]

The seats currently mounted on the stadium's north stand were donated from the old Stavanger Stadion main stand, which was renovated in 2004.

Sandnes Ulf are currently building a new home ground, Øster Hus Arena,[5] which are located next to their current stadium. The stadium will be an all-seater with a capacity of 7,582 spectators.[6] The new stadium are planned to be opened in the beginning of the 2019 season.
