Löfbergs Arena is an arena located in Karlstad, Sweden, situated just above the river delta of Klarälven. It is primarily used for ice hockey, and is the home arena of Färjestad BK. It opened in 2001 following a complete overhaul and major expansion of the previously existing arena Färjestads Ishall. It replaced Färjestads Ishall as the home of Färjestad and has a capacity of 8,647 people.
In 2004 and 2006, the arena hosted a semi-final of Melodifestivalen. Other notable music artists and groups who have performed at the arena include Elton John, Bob Dylan, John Fogerty, Bryan Adams, Dolly Parton, Rod Stewart, Motörhead and Judas Priest.
The name of the arena comes from the coffee roastery Löfbergs.
