ABB Arena is the common name for the two biggest indoor arenas in Västerås, Sweden.[1]

Arena Nord[edit]

ABB Arena Nord

ABB Arena Nord is the ice hockey arena and VIK Västerås HK's home arena. It was renovated in September 2007 and has a capacity of 4,902 spectators.[2][3] "ABB Arena Nord" is the renovated arena, which was earlier called Rocklundahallen.

Arena Syd[edit]

ABB Arena Syd

"ABB Arena Syd" is the second arena and is a multi-purpose arena mainly used for bandy, but also for concerts and exhibitions. ABB Arena Syd is the biggest permanent indoor arena for bandy in Sweden (Friends Arena and Tele2 Arena, where the last few Swedish Championship finals have been played, are bigger).

ABB Arena Syd is the home arena for Västerås SK Bandy and has a capacity of 9,000 spectators at bandy matches.[4]

It was the main arena at the Bandy World Championship 2009. The Federation of International Bandy (FIB) have arranged training camps for developing bandy countries here.[5]
