indoor stadiums

Do Norway, Finland and Sweden have many full size indoor halls for winter training?
I know that in Iceland there are 4 indoor halls, they are in Reykjavik (Egilshollin), Kopavogur (Fifan), Keflavik (Reykjaneshollin) and Akureyri (Boginn). There is one being built in Akranes (ready next year i think)
The Iceland League Cup is played in these halls during the winter

According to Finnish FA's website there are 15 full size indoor halls in Finland. I am not sure when this information was last updated. At least one new hall is just about ready in Espoo. Of course there are also several smaller indoor halls. Finnish league cup is played in indoor halls, except the final that is usually a season opener for the outdoor season.

I think the emphasis in Finland is moving more and more for building heated third generation artificial pitches for outdoors.

In 2003, we had 14 indoor halls in Norway, but only 4 of them are qualified for playing toplevel football in. 9 of them are allowed for the lower divisions.. The last is um.. for other sports and training I guess

Not sure if any new ones have been built since then, but I assume so.

Rosenborg is one a few Norwegian clubs who own their own indoor hall, ABRA-hallen in Malvik, 20 km east of Trondheim:

This is an inexpensive hall, made of plastic and held up by the high air pressure made of air being pumped into it.
