Jordal Amfi is an indoor sporting arena located in Oslo, Norway. The capacity of the arena is 4,450 and was opened in 1952. It is the home arena of the Vålerenga ice hockey team.


Jordal Amfi is one of Norway's most legendary sporting arenas. Opened for the 1952 Winter Olympics as the first purpose-built ice hockey arenas in the country it quickly became the sports shrine in the country.

For many years it remained an outdoor arena, but in 1971 a roof was built with money left in figure skating legend Sonja Henie's will. This made Jordal Amfi the sixth indoor hockey rink in Norway.

In 1989 a new practice facility was opened next to the old arena. The so called Jordal Ungdomshall has 400 spectator places. An expansion in 1999, in relation with the World Ice Hockey Championships, gave the stadium today's appearance.
