The arena has room for about 65,000 people. The large shopping mall "Mall of Scandinavia" is located next to the arena. The shopping area was inaugurated on November 12, 2015 and has room for about 250 stores on three floors.
The arena was completed and opened on October 27, 2012. The facility must temporarily change its name in the event of a World Cup or European Championship final, or a final match in the Europa League or UEFA Champions League. All shops and restaurants must also close during these events if they are not involved and are an official sponsor.
Friends Arena may host finals in the European Championship play-offs and the UEFA Champions League as the arena meets the highest technical recommendations. The football pitch is 105 x 68 meters and the ceiling height is 33 meters. There is also an openable roof.
