    I wouldn't necessarily call myself a fan, but I like to follow some of the less popular national teams, including Iceland. I find them strangely more interesting than the more popular teams. I have always wanted to visit to see a game at the Laugardalsvöllur, their national stadium.

    I have been to Reykjavik and did not see a national stadium. It must have been very tiny.

    Even if it's a small stadium, it's still their national stadium.

    yeah, as an Icelander i´m a proud supporter of our NT and attend Laugardalsvöllur for most of the home matches (a crabby stadium though)

    That's cool. How well is the national team supported in Iceland?

    Rather well I must say, even though attandences at Laugardalsvöllur may vary, TV ratings are usually high. The record attandences was 20.000 (roughly 7% of the nation) in a friendly vs Italy 5 years ago, this however can not be repeated in an official match due to all seater criteria.
    On the other hand rather few i think follow the team to road games, most obviusly due to costs

    Is there some fans of Iceland football? It's hard even to find some info for the games and the season starts soon. I'd like to find some active members from there. :)

    I once had very good seafood at some restaurant in Reykjavik. So while I don't know much about Icelandic soccer, I am a huge fan of Icelandic seafood :D

    Hay Iceland... I am sorry guys, but I am certainly sure that Croatia will decimate you tomorrow. Your footballers are not bad, but Croatians are much better. Brazil is smiling at us.
