In 1969 Norway's fourth indoor ice hockey rink was opened in Asker, the first of its kind in the Oslo area. Farmer Bjørn Mortensen wished to give something back to the community, and came to agreement with the local municipality to build Askerhallen. Unfortunately the arena was damaged in a fire in 1972, but it was quickly rebuilt and re-opened for the 1972–73 season.
The arenas appearance is much the same today as it was back then, apart from the installation of new seating, VIP and press boxes.
