The capacity of the arena is 7,909 for ice hockey games and 11,000 for concerts which makes it the 8th largest ice hockey arena in Sweden.[1] The arena is the home arena of the Brynäs IF ice hockey team.

History[edit]

Originally named Gavlerinken, the arena was opened on 28 September 1967.[3] In 2005, the municipality of Gävle sold the arena to Brynäs IF which re-built it and sold the naming rights to Leaf Candy Company, manufacturer of the Läkerol pastilles, and it re-opened as Läkerol Arena on 13 November 2006. After the municipality of Gävle re-acquired the naming rights in June 2014, they changed the name of the arena to Gavlerinken Arena for the following five seasons (through 2018–19).[4] Following the expiration of this deal, on 20 September 2019 a new deal was reached with Monitor ERP System to rename the arena Monitor ERP Arena for the following five seasons (through 2023–24).[5]

In 2007 and 2016, the arena hosted a semi-final of Melodifestivalen.
