For about 15 years, there have been plans for an indoor arena for bandy in Bollnäs, Sweden, the city that since decades have been bandy for so many Swedish bandy lovers. Now the dream has come true and on Tuesday, October 18, the new arena, which will be named SBB Arena, was inaugurated. Bollnäs is also the reigning World Cup champion after the victory in Sandviken 2019 when the team defeated SKA Neftyanik 5-2 in the final.

In the last week, Bollnäs’ new signing has also been presented. Erik Pettersson has been ranked as one of the world’s best bandy players right now, perhaps the very best. The last season he played in AIK, Solna where there was great turbulence around the team and the finances. At the last moment, Pettersson chose to leave Stockholm and the new club will be Bollnäs GIF. A surprising and significant addition to the squad for the coming season. It was news that became a big sensation in bandy Sweden when presented.
