The arena has a capacity of 23.000 spectators for concerts and 15.000 for soccer, making it one of the largest indoor stadiums in Northern Europe. Owned by Euforum Holding AS, Telenor Arena is Norway's main arena when the biggest internation artists visit Norway, and have hosted among others Madonna, Lady Gaga, Foo Fighters, Iron Maiden, Roger Waters, Jay-Z and Kanye West. The arena has also become a major venue for exhibitions, seminars, conventions and conferences, with large exhibitions like Reiselivsmessen and Sjøen for Alle that will be held in the arena in 2013. Telenor Arena will in future also host a variety of sporting events like handball, biathalon, ice hockey, motorsports and football. It is not the arena that organizes these exciting events, but rather the concert promoters, event companies and exhibition companies, who are among are largest customers.
