NHK Arena, formerly E.ON Arena, Sydkraft Arena and Timrå Isstadion, is an indoor sporting arena located in Timrå, Sweden. It is the home arena of the Timrå IK ice hockey team. The current capacity is 6,000.
The current building was constructed in 2003 on the grounds of, and re-using the roof from the old Timrå Isstadion. This predecessor dates back to around 1964 according to the Swedish Hockey Association, but was officially inaugurated September 4, 1966. The old arena underwent a heavy refresh for the 1994/1995 season, resulting in a capacity of 5,500. A second major reconstruction was made prior to season 2006/2007, resulting in today's capacity of 6,000, still far from the all time high arena audience record from 1972 of 11,695 paying spectators.
