The stadium which was rebuilt during 2008-2009, has an artificial grass surface and a capacity of 17,234.
IFK Norrköping took over the ownership of the arena in 2010 from the city council of Norrköping in a 308.5 million SEK purchase.
From its opening in 1904 until its renovation in 2009, the arena had been known as Norrköpings Idrottspark, but after the renovation the name was changed to Nya Parken. In 2016, the arena changed name for the third time in its history. This time to östgötaporten, after the naming rights were sold.
