Gavlerinken Arena, formerly known as Läkerol Arena (2006–2014) and Gavlerinken (1967–2006), is an indoor sporting arena located in Gävle, Sweden. The capacity of the arena is 8,585 for ice hockey games and 11,000 for concerts which makes it the 5th largest ice hockey arena in Sweden. The arena is the home arena of the Brynäs IF ice hockey team.

The arena was built in 1967, named Gavlerinken. In 2005, the municipality of Gävle sold the arena to Brynäs IF which re-built it and sold the naming rights to Leaf Candy Company, manufacturer of the Läkerol pastilles, and it re-opened as Läkerol Arena on November 13, 2006. After the municipality of Gävle re-acquired the naming rights in June 2014, they changed the name of the arena to Gavlerinken Arena for the following five seasons (through 2018–19).[1]

The arena is partly powered by two 4 kW vertical axis wind turbine manufactured by Urban Green Energy.[2]

In 2007, the arena hosted a semi-final of Melodifestivalen.
