HistoryEdit

On 1 October 2010 Danish financial institution Jyske Bank purchased naming rights to the arena.

The arena's opening event, on 20 October 2010, was a concert by Lady Gaga, during The Monster Ball Tour, with Semi Precious Weapons as her opening act.

The arena was also being considered as the venue for the Eurovision Song Contest 2014, before the contract was eventually won by B&W Hallerne, Refshaleøen in Copenhagen.[1]

The arena was one of two arenas to host the 2018 IIHF World Championship, the other being the Royal Arena in Copenhagen.[2][3]
