Riisvangen Stadion was constructed in the 1936 on the initiative of Aarhus Municipality. During this period, the population of Aarhus had experienced a large population growth concentrated around northern Aarhus, known as Aarhus N, and the construction of a sports facility would facilitate needs to nurture sports in the area. The stadium was built in an area which, at that time, was devoid of buildings.
In April 2018, a new wooden stand was initiated against Brønshøj Boldklub. On 4 October 2019, Fremad announced a sponsorship deal with Royal Unibrew, which meant that the stand was named "Faxe Kondi Tribunen", after the soft drink produced by the company.
