By car

We strongly recommend common transport to reach Friends Arena, as they are many times more convenient and friendlier to the environment than going by car.

If you opt to bring your car we advise you to park well away from the Arena and walk, or use public transport for the rest of the way. Especially at big events, you can park at a commuter train station and take the train or bus the rest of the way.

  • The Westfield Mall of Scandinavia has 3,700 parking spaces in its parking lot, but it fills up very quickly when the mall is busy and on days when we host events.

By taxi

Allow yourself plenty of time to get to the Arena if you are taking a taxi.

At big events, many people are trying to get to and from the same place, at the same time, and there can be traffic jams in the vicinity of the Arena.
