History and description
Construction of the Borås Arena began in December 2003 and lasted until early 2005. The stadium officially opened on 17 April 2005 with a match between Elfsborg and Örgryte (1-0).
The Borås Arena came at a cost of SEK 112 million. It has an artificial pitch.
Apart from being the home of IF Elfsborg, the Borås Arena also hosts the home matches of lower-league team Norrby IF.
