Arena Vänersborg is an indoor arena in Vänersborg, Sweden. It is used for bandy, concerts and other events. It hosted the Bandy World Championship 2013.[1] For the second time Group A is a separate event.[2]

The arena can be reached by car or by Västtrafik buses (bus stops Sportcentrum or Tenggrenstorp).

The arena has been the target of high local press attention, because of the high cost overrun. The city has approved a cost of just over SEK 100 million, although the end cost has been around SEK 320 million.
