Arena

Background
Since fall 2006, MODO Hockey play their home games in the 7,350 capacity Fjällräven Center, formerly known as "Swedbank Arena". The arena is located in downtown Örnsköldsvik, on land that previously had been used for industrial purposes and as a part of Örnsköldsvik Port.

Fjällräven Center replaced Kempehallen (built 1964) as the home of MODO due to an increased need of seating capacity, road access problems and a limited revenue potential in the municipality-owned Kempehallen.

The new arena was financed by the club in association with a number of parties, including Peter Forsberg, Örnsköldsvik Municipality, The County of Västernorrland and the European Union. Because of the success of the new arena, MODO Hockey has been able to increase its ownership share and owns 100% of Fjällräven Center since the summer of 2008.

Step inside...
Fjällräven Center is a two-tiered bowl with a total of around 5,300 seats and room for 1,400 standing spectators. In between the two tiers of seating a level of 48 luxury suites (seating capacity: 516) and a restaurant (128 seats available for events) has added a new experience to watching hockey in Örnsköldsvik. 20 spaces for disabled spectators are available.

In addition to the restaurant, you will find a large number of pubs, kiosks and fast food outlets on both tiers of seating. MODO Shop, with a large range of MODO souvenirs and clothing, is situated on entry level, to the right of the turnstiles.

Fjällräven Center has, besides being a success story to MODO Hockey, meant new possibilities for the town of Örnsköldsvik to attract events, artists and musicals of national and international renown. Since 2006 Fjällräven Center has, amongst  others, hosted the European Curling Championships, heavy metal legends Alice Cooper & Thin Lizzy, Swedish artists such as Kent and qualification rounds for the Eurovision Song Contest.

What is "Fjällräven"?
Fjällräven is another success story of Örnsköldsvik. Founded in 1960 by local son Åke Nordin, the brand of Fjällräven and its parent company Fenix Outdoor has grown to become a leading supplier of outdoor equipment and clothing. Fjällräven has a long tradition of supporting MODO and now the red Arctic Fox logo proudly adorns the home of MODO Hockey.
