null

Friends Arena, which seats up to 60,000 people, opened a few months ago in north Stockholm. It will be joined in summer 2013 by the Tele2 Arena in the Ericsson Globe Arena district.

The Tele2 Arena will seat up to 30,000 people. The venue will feature a busy calendar of events all year round. The Tele2 Arena will be equipped with a retractable roof to make it versatile and able to host events regardless of the weather and the time of year.

The district surrounding the Ericsson Globe Arena has evolved into one of Stockholm's prime entertainment districts with several arenas, restaurants, shopping malls, and hotels. The Tele2 Arena will be operated by the global event and sports company AEG Facilities, which also runs the existing arenas in the Globe Arena district.
