The Pitch: A Sports Arena With a Soul

The Pitch tells the story of Melavöllurinn, Reykjavík’s main sports arena and meeting place until the 70’s. The Pitch served as a melting pot of ideas for Iceland’s newly acquired independence in 1944 that brought back hope and prosperity in the years to come.
