Grindavík Grizzlies is an Icelandic football club founded by Dronkert86

History

On 23-07-2020 the signatures were set, by the owners of Beeldenstorm F.C, on an agreement to create a new club in Iceland. The affiliated club was named Grindavík Grizzlies and based in the region of Suðurnes. The owner said that this was a big day for the city of Grindavík and also for Beeldenstorm F.C. in the Netherlands.

First match

The first match was played only three days later on the home ground, Bláa Lónið (Blue lagoon) Everyone in the stadium was very excited and after the match there was a big celebration, not only because of the realisation of the new club, but also by the very suprising win. After goals of Tor Øyvind Bergseng, Freymundur Erlingsson and Snorri Bragason, every felt that this was a good foundation to bring a lot of succes in the near future.

Home ground

The stadium of Grindavík Grizzlies is Bláa Lónið, which means Blue Lagoon in Icelandic. There are 8.000 terraces, 3.000 basic seatings and 1000 seats under the high-tech retractable roof. With a total of 12.000 and a big stand where the Grizzlies fan club roar ! there is a high tense atmosphere every home game.

First Season

Because Dronkert86 took charge halfway through the season, the new franchise replaced FC Gunnlauchson and took over the 2nd position in the league table. The first season was to get experience in the league and set the bar for the upcoming seasons. At the Season 62 page you can find all the results and other information about the first season of the Grizzlies.
