The entrances are open all evening so you can arrive later, but we recommend you to be here in good time as there will be many visitors and the entrance can take time.
After the event we recommend you to take the metro from Solna Centrum which is within walking distance of the arena. Staff and signage will help you to show the way - VIEW MAP HERE! For the latest updates and best journey view SL.se.
Be here in good time
Many fans are expected for the concerts and because Friends Arena and the event owner demand a high level of security entry to the Arena it can take longer than expected. For this reason you should be here in good time and leave larger belongings at home.
There will be a limited wardrobe for floor ticket holders and no wardrobe for seating tickets. You can deposit larger bags and other items you are not allowed to bring into the arena in our cloakroom between entrance E and entrance F. It cost 50 SEK (card payment only).
We recommend everyone to bring lighter jackets despite the cold (sorry!) and very small or preferably no handbags. There's a very limited space for luggage. We want everyone to enjoy the concert and due to the amount of people and limited wardrobe space we'd like to avoid long wardrobe queues in check-in and check-out of your personal items.
Please leave system cameras and selfie sticks at home. Smartphones and small compact cameras are allowed. Food, drinks and umbrellas are not allowed into the Arena for security reasons. Handbags and backpacks larger than 40x40x20 cm (height, width, depth) can not be brought into the arena.
You can purchase merchandise in the Arena square and on all levels inside the Arena.
Will be closed.
To make your visit safer, more convenient and easier, the Arena is a cash-free zone. Bring your bank or credit card only as only these payment methods are accepted. Cards accepted are Amex, Visa, Mastercard and Diners.
