Myresjöhus Arena – stadium description

The design of Öster Arena was first presented in 2010. This work by Iwdal Akerblad Arkitektbyran AB is a rather modest (in size) venue with stands for 12,000 people. And is an outcome of long discussions about how a new football stadium is needed in Växjö.

The outdated, almost 50-year old Varendsvallen was still good for many events, so was left untouched, while new arena construction site started growing since March 2011 just next to it. Works went very well and along schedule, ending in late summer of 2012. However cost rose from the initial figure of SEK 170 million to 204 million.

Significant part of the spending was covered by first naming rights deal that provided name change for 7 years to Myresjöhus Arena.
