BAG BAN DURING THE ELITLOPPET WEEKEND

There is currently a bag ban for major events in Sweden – and that ban will also apply during the Elitloppet weekend at Solvalla in 2024. Solvalla does its best to make it as easy as possible for you who visit us. 

The bag ban means exactly what it sounds like – no bags are allowed at the event. Only people who for medical reasons need to bring a bag and people with children who need a diaper bag are exempt.

Can’t Solvalla make an exception?
The bag ban is generally issued against major events in Sweden. Solvalla does not own the decision, but must follow it, to violate it is considered a violation of the Public Order Act. It is the Swedish Police Authority that decides on bag bans at events. Solvalla has the greatest respect for their judgement, and Solvalla wants the Elitloppet to be as safe and enjoyable as possible. There is no known threat to Solvalla or the Elitloppet.

How is a bag defined?
According to the Swedish police authority, a wallet or small toiletry bag is not a bag. Larger than that is not allowed.

If you have a bag or a transparent bag?
The bag ban also applies to plastic bags.

Can you bring a computer with a charger in your hand?
Yes, computer and charger cord, but not in a bag.

Can you bring food?
Unfortunately, it is not allowed to bring your own picnic, not even if you carry the food directly in your hand. Instead, there will be a serving area over the entire course.

Is it possible to store your bag at Solvalla?
Not at Solvalla, but we will offer bag storage subject to space at the Bällstavägen/Travbanevägen intersection (at the Solvalla bus stop). A fee of SEK 100 will be charged per bag paid with Swish. The bag storage will be open from 11.00-18.00 on Friday, and 09.00-21.00 on Saturday and Sunday. However, we recommend that you do not bring any bags with you to Solvalla.

How will the bag ban affect the stable area?
The stable area is a workplace and not a public area, and is therefore not covered by the general bag ban.

Can you bring your own chair to Solvalla?
– Yes, as long as the chair is not in a bag, pouch or case.

What is classified as a case?
– A case is a tightly closed material around a tablet or computer without a handle or more compartments to store things in.

RESTAURANT AND GRANDSTAND SEATS

Solvalla offers a wide choice of restaurants and catering options. These range from fine dining in “Kongressen” to simple kiosks offering freshly barbecued food.

There is usually a high demand for restaurant tickets. 


BE PREPARED

Solvalla is a cashless facility. Bets on horses are placed digitally using your phone, tablet, or computer.

Betting at the track – here’s how it works:

  1. This track, along with all of Sweden’s racetracks, are fully digitalized. This means that you are welcome do your betting on your smartphone, tablet or computer.
  2. Your betting must be done with your domestic betting partner. No bets can be placed with ATG. If you are unsure of which of your domestic betting partners to use, please visit www.swedishhorseracing.com and click on BET NOW.
  3. We recommend using the web version for your domestic betting partner instead of the mobile app if there is one. Some mobile apps might be geo-blocked and can therefore not be used outside of the country.

If the web version also is blocked we urge to place your bets before arriving to Sweden.
If you are not resident in Sweden, contact your national gaming company to examine options for betting at Solvalla

Help is also available at the Service Center on Level 2 outside the “Bistron” restaurant.
