  • The stadium was impressive. The bar areas were a tad on the slow side. The stewards were non existent after kick off. Our section decided to stand the whole way through both halves of the Man Utd v Ajax cup final match. my 8 year old son had to stand on his chair so he could watch the match. There were flags draped down from tier 2 which was above our seated area, these flags blocked the view of people further back in our tier. There were people who flaunted the non smoking rule in the stadium. Non the less our experience of friends Arena was made better by a good result for United. 😀
  • very cool Stadium, easy to access, very good Service options like WC and food, the setting chairs are close to the playground and you will able to see the players closely.
  • Great to watch sports, but try to get your food and drinks outside. Alcohol-free beer and food from 30 years ago, this is aweful! You would not serve this to your enemies, let alone your Friends!
  • A great place to see sporting events. Especially football. This is the venue for 2017 UEFA finals between Manchester United and Ajax.
  • Modern sport/concert arena with close connections to Stockholm's metro system. Be warned -- the only beer they sell here is that of the alcohol-free kind...
