Globus District
The Tele2Arena occupies a site next door to Stockholm's famous Globe stadium, one more element in a complex of sporting venues in the city's Globus District.  The stadium is designed to accommodate 30,000 fans for football games and 45,000 for concerts.  It is clad with perforated metal panels and features a retractable roof that can transform it from an outdoor stadium into an indoor arena in less than 20 minutes. 

Unusually, it is also capable of adding an ice surface on the stadium floor and thereby accommodate ice hockey and other ice sports.  The arena's website describes itself as one of the world's most modern multi-venues, "... with free wifi, 600 digital screens, Stadium Vision technology , retractable roof, transparent façade and only six meters from the front row to the sidelines. ...  Here you (are) closer to the experience when Hammarby Soccer and Djurgården Soccer play their home games. ... Despite (its) young age, Tele2 Arena has already been visited by the likes of Avicii , The Rolling Stones , Justin Timberlake , Aerosmith and Golden Times ."  In November of 2015 Madonna's Rebel Heart Tour will be visiting the Tele2Arena.
