The Swedish Arena boom (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Sverige har under 2000-talet har byggt så mycket arenor att det saknar motstycke i svensk historia. Miljardbelopp har plöjts ner i arenorna samtidigt som kritiken har växt. Nya arenor byggs och planeras i skrivande stund trots att nästan samtliga arenor har visat sig olönsamma. Då den nuvarande forskningen kring svenska arenor är väldigt begränsad finns ett behov av att studera och beskriva den arenaboom som fortfarande pågår.

Syfte: Huvudsyftet med denna studie är att öka kunskapen om de svenska arenainvesteringarna med avseende på följande aspekter: orsaker till varför de har byggts, dess investeringsstruktur samt dess ägarstruktur.

Metod: Studiens genomförande innebär en metodkombination av strukturerade intervjuer och enkäter till svenska arenorna byggda mellan år 2000-2014. En litteraturstudie låg till grund för enkätens utformning, vilken på grund av bortfall kompletterades med strukturerade intervjuer. Vidare analyserades empirin dels deskriptivt och dels statistiskt för att kartlägga den svenska arenaboomen och dess påverkansfaktorer.

Slutsats: De främsta orsakerna bakom studiens arenainvesteringar är rationalisering och förbättring, ökad idrottssatsning, ökad samhällsberikande och ökad image. Arenorna har under det senaste decenniet en trend då ägarstrukturen har blivit mer privat vilket har resulterat i att majoriteten av de undersökta arenorna nu är privata. Även statistiska körningar åskådliggör att arenornas ägarstruktur inte påverkar ovanstående bakomliggande orsaker till investeringarna.

Abstract [en]

Background: During the 2000s Sweden has built so many arenas s that it’s unprecedented in the Swedish history. Billions has been plowed into the arenas while criticism has grown. While this is being written new arenas are planned and built even though almost all new arenas has been proved to be unprofitable. Due to limited research regarding Swedish arenas there’s a need to study and describe the ongoing arena-boom.

Purpose: The main purpose of this study is to increase knowledge about Swedish arena investments regard to the following aspects: Reasons why they have been built, its investment structure and its ownership structure.

Method: The study has been performed by combining a method with structured interviews and questionnaires to all Swedish arenas built between years 2000-2014. A literature study was carried out as foundation of the surveys design, which because of incomplete data had to be supplemented with structured interviews. In order to visualize the Swedish arena-boom and its influencing factors the empirical data was partly analyzed descriptive and partly statistically.

Conclusion: The main reasons behind this study’s arena investments are rationalization and improvement, increased focus on sports, as well as increased social enrichment and enhanced image. During the last decade a trade of ownership structure has taken place and as a result arenas are a majority of the arenas are now privately owned. Statistical analyzes has been made illustrate that the ownership structure doesn’t affected the underlying causes behind the arena investments.
