GroundsEdit

 
A picture of the field as well as their new facilities taken by Gunnar Guðmundsson.

Magni play their matches at Grenivíkurvöllur but also play at Boginn in Akureyri if the pitch condition is poor as is common during the preseason.

Seating and the new facilities were installed at Grenivíkurvöllur due to their promotion to the second tier of Icelandic football. The amount of seats are approximately 360 with plenty of space around the field as well.

There is also a smaller field on the east side of the main field which is mostly used by the future stars for practice.
