Friends Arena - AEG

AEG has entered into a multi-year agreement to manage the biggest stadium in the Nordics, Stockholm’s 75,000-capacity Friends Arena.

Located in Solna, in Stockholm county around five miles north of the city, Friends Arena is home to the Swedish national football team and All-Swedish league club AIK, and hosts a regular programme of concerts, family shows and other live events.

It is owned by Arenabolaget in Solna, a joint venture between the Swedish Football Association and property company Fabege.

Friends Arena becomes the sixth AEG-operated venue in Stockholm, joining Tele2Arena (30,000-cap.), Söderstadion (13,000-cap.), Ericsson Globe (16,000-cap.), the Hovet (9,300-cap.) ice-hockey stadium and the Annexet (3,700-cap.) conference and events centre.

“We are honoured to support Friends Arena, an elite venue that complements our other facilities in the marketplace,” comments Bob Newman, president of AEG Facilities. “Its location in a growing and vibrant office, residential and retail environment has created a unique, world-class destination.”

Coliseum is a global series of stadium and arena business conferences and a sports venue news online-platform dedicated to the various challenges of designing, constructing and operating of sports venues all around the world.
