This very nice stadium is located in a commercial area in the northern parts of the city. It is easy accesible from the main road and with plenty of parkering places. Only about 500 meters away you will also find the Borås Hockey Arena.
On an extremely cold november evening, a lot was on stake at Borås Arena. The season was into the final stages and this was the final home-match for IF Elfsborg. Still everything to play for as both sides still had a shot at the medals in Allsvenskan. At kick-off it was minus 5 degrees and as the evening progressed, it got even colder. But in the stands and at the pitch, it was a hot atmosphere. The visitors from AIK brought a lot of support as usual and the home supporters Guliganerna, also performed strong.
The match turned out to be a goal bonanza, with plenty to cheer for both sets of fans. But in the end, the visitors from Stockholm were the stronger side. Great atmosphere and a freezing, but fantastic experience at Borås Arena. A week later, the season was finished. AIK ended up with the silver medals, while IF Elfsborg had to settle for fourth.
