Renovation[edit]

At late summer 2005 did Skellefteå Kraft Arena turn into a worksite since the decision was made to renovate the arena. At the start of the 2007/2008 season the renovation was almost finished and the seats had been increased from the previous figure of 5,200 to 6,001. The renovation is cost estimated to 140 MSEK and will transform Skellefteå Kraft Arena from a typical Swedish indoor ice hockey venue to a modern ice hockey and event arena.
