Beyoncé

There is only one Queen B - and she has blown off the roof at Friends Arena twice: during the five-plus concert from The Formation Tour 2016 and when she returned with her husband Jay-Z and their tour OTR II 2018.

Sweden-England, 2012

The inaugural match for Swedish men´s national football team ended with a thrilling 4-2 and Zlatan's unforgettable bicicleta goal in front of 49,967 spectators. A goal that was voted the most beautiful of the year at Fifa's annual gala.

Avicii Tribute Concert, 2019

58 163 people gathered at Friends Arena to pay tribite to the life and work of Avicii. It was a new attendance record for the arena and all the artists waived their performance fee in homage to Tim and to contribute to the Tim Bergling Foundation.

UEFA Europa League-final, 2017

Ca 47 000 football fans watched the final between Ajax and Manchester United. Friends Arena was also the venue for the women's European Championship final in 2013. These are two of the largest international football events that Sweden as a host nation has arranged.

Sweden International Horse Show

Once a year, our probably cutest guests move into the arena - more specifically about 300 horses. The big horse event lasts four days with equestrian sports and shows in international top class framed by a wonderful christmas atmosphere.

AIK-GIF Sundsvall, 2018

A new audience record for football at Friends Arena was set when 51,128 supporters watched the big meeting on November 4, 2018. It was crazy pressure in the hunt for gold that AIK then secured in the Allsvenskan's final round against Kalmar FF.
