Nya Parken is a multi-purpose stadium in Norrköping, Sweden constructed in 1903. It is currently used mostly for football matches. It is the home arena for IFK Norrköping, IK Sleipner and for IF Sylvia. The stadium had a capacity of 19,414 people until 2008/2009 when the arena was re-built. During the 1958 FIFA World Cup, it hosted some group stage matches. During the Euro 1992, it hosted CIS - Germany (1-1), Scotland - Germany (0-2) and Scotland - CIS (3-0), all in Group B.

2008-2009 the arena was rebuilt. The arena now uses Artificial Grass and the capacity has decreased from 19,414 to 17,234 spectators. The new arena hosts 16 VIP booths, VIP seating for 515 spectators, three bars, two restaurants and small indoor training arena called "Teknikhallen". IFK Norrköping took over the ownership of the arena in 2010 from the city council of Norrköping in a 308.5 million SEK purchase.
