Heden used for bandy

Heden is a ballcourt and public space/square in the centre of Gothenburg, Sweden. Football matches are played here in the run up to the final of the Gothia Cup. The final is played at Ullevi. Also the largest handball tournament in the world is played here during the summer: Partille Cup. Then Heden is transformed to a handball festival with over 50 playing fields and 15 000 players.

An artificial bandy ice has recently been established and GAIS play their home matches here.

Before its public use Heden was a military ground were they used to drill soldiers (Excersisheden).
