Cloetta CenterEdit profile
Cloetta Center is an arena in Linköping, Sweden. It opened in 2004 and holds 8,500 people during sport events and 11,500 during concerts. On its opening it became the new home ice for the ice hockey team Linköpings HC, replacing Stångebro Ishall.
In 2005 and 2008 Cloetta Center hosted a Semi-final of Melodifestivalen, which it will also do in 2011. Some other notable music acts include Deep Purple, Europe, John Fogerty, Toto, W.A.S.P. and Whitesnake.
The name of the arena, which comes from candy manufacturer Cloetta Fazer who acquired the naming rights, holds a double meaning in that "Center" is also the name of one of the company's main brands.
