StadiumEdit

Léttir play their home matches in the astroturf Léttisbúr (Léttir Cage), which is located at ÍR-völlur ground in south-east Reykjavík. Owned by 2. deild karla (third tier) club Íþróttafélag Reykjavíkur. The stadium's capacity is 800.[3]

The name Léttisbúr or the Léttir cage stems from the tall surrounding fence around the pitch.
