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
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
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
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.
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.
