Globen metro station

Globen metro station is on the green line of the Stockholm metro, located by Globen in Johanneshov, Söderort. The station was opened on 9 September 1951 as Slakthuset station as a part of the stretch between Gullmarsplan and Stureby.[1] In 1958 the station was renamed as Isstadion station (after the nearby Johanneshovs Isstadion, now known as Hovet). The station acquired its current name on 20 August 1989 and is the only one in the system to have had more than two names. The distance to Slussen is 3 km.

According to plans presented in the spring of 2015, this station and the adjacent Enskede gård station, which are both above ground, will be replaced by a single underground metro station in the future. This change will be made when this branch of the green line is to be transferred to be a branch of the blue line when the blue line is developed to the south side of the city.[2]
