Löfbergs Arena during period break

Löfbergs Arena is an arena located in Karlstad, Sweden, situated just above the river delta of Klarälven. It is primarily used for ice hockey, and is the home arena of Färjestad BK. It opened in 2001 following a complete overhaul and major expansion of the previously existing arena Färjestads Ishall. It replaced Färjestads Ishall as the home of Färjestad and has a capacity of 8,647 people.

On September 30, 2009, Färjestad BK faced off against the NHL's Detroit Red Wings in an exhibition match from the arena, losing 6–2.

The name of the arena comes from the coffee roastery Löfbergs.
