  • Last Sunday I was at the arena as a visiting audience. We got to walk around the stadium and at others the way to arrive at the entrance when we left the arena, it was an even worse way to go. This was due to the guards at Friends who designated this road. Rent deadly and really bad!

  • What I mainly want to lift is the staff-friendly and helpful! All was calm and took the time to explain about the furnace had issues. Fairly high prices on snacks and soft drinks inside the stadium but that's expected.

  • Went here for the Rolling stones had a great time in the venue just getting inside was manic crowds of people getting in and not enough staff to process people thru quick enough in the rain. I along bought my compact camera not an SLR as stated on the website was not permitted by one of the security guards tried again with another and was let in. Once inside a great venue quick access to the levels and seats and not too bad prices for drinks and food. Overall a great venue located next to the train station and shopping mall.
  • On the upside: a modern stadium with good views. But: hard to get to and from, really bad food inside and it's in the middle of nowhere with no nice pubs around (Mall of Scandinavia with some expensive franchise-takers nowadays, but nothing "genuine"). If you like football, take in a match there but it won't make your "best stadiums visited"-list, I'm sure.
  • Complete desaster: Long queues everywhere, several of them forcing people to stand in pouring rain. The tent to deposit bags was a bad joke. Overall really bad information and facilities. This was Sweden's most expensive concert ever (The Rolling Stones). The public was expecting to be treated accordingly, not like at a muddy festival for teenagers. As a local, I felt ashamed for visitors who came from all over Northern Europe to see the concert of the year. BTW, the concert itself was great.
  • Great stadium but the area around it is not quite built to accommodate all the people leaving at once so it can take quite a bit of time.
  • It should be possible to buy the tickets for Sweden-Italy since 4pm. However, the website is offline and no updates have been provided. Totally unprofessional service! Update: Friends Arena has postponed the ticket released to today but, they have sold physical tickets meanwhile. Therefore, now there is a reduced number of tickets available and the system is still slow. They have failed from every perspective. The company is not able to handle huge events and they are simply destroying their brand reputation.
