One of the world´s most flexible multi arenas
Friends Arena is the national football stadium in Sweden and of the world´s most modern multi arenas. The arena was built to give its guests an optimal experience. Several factors come together to make this happen; first is its flexibility, scalability and the audience’s proximity to the arena floor where the action takes place. Then there are the comfortable seats, the striking visual experience and world-class acoustics, all combining to make Friends Arena unique in Sweden.
Friends Arena was inaugurated in October 2012 and can host events on all surfaces; from natural grass to gravel and from ice to parquet flooring. With a retractable roof it is possible for us to arrange concerts, sports events and shows all year round – no matter the weather.
It is the home arena for the Swedish men’s football team and the local Solna-based team AIK. The arena also complies with the UEFA and FIFA regulations for international football and have had two big international UEFA-events: UEFA Europa League Final 2017 and UEFA Women's Euro 2013.
In spite of its young age, big artists such as Beyoncé, Coldplay, Guns N’ Roses, Bruce Springsteen, The Rolling Stones and Swedish House Mafia have already visited the arena.
