History and description
Plans for the Swedbank Stadion were approved late 2005, and building works started in April 2007. The stadium got built adjacent to Malmö’s old Malmö Stadion.
Works were completed in early 2009 and the Swedbank Stadion officially opened on the 13th of April with a league match between Malmö and Örgryte (3-0). The costs of construction had been SEK 695 million.
Swedbank Stadion is located about 3 kilometres south of Malmö’s city centre and Malmö’s main railway station.
The stadium lies in a mainly residential area. It is bordered by a large park and surrounded by other sports facilities, among which Malmö’s old stadium which is still in use for athletics events.
If arriving by car from the E20/E6 motorway (south-west), take exit Malmö V (south of the city). Continue straight ahead toward the city following signs for Centrum and Malmö Arena. Go through about 6 roundabouts (for about 4 kilometres) until the crossing with the John Ericssons Väg and turn right. The Swedbank Stadion is located behind Malmö’s old stadium on the right side of the road.
If coming from the E20/E6 north, take exit Trafikplats Hindby and turn right towards the city (Centrum). Follow for about 4 kilometres until you see Malmö’s old stadium on your left.
