Prior to the World Athletics Championships in 1995, the arena was extended, giving a total capacity of 43,000 seated spectators at sport events and up to 60,000 at music concerts (with 25, 000 standing on the pitch area). The European Athletics Championships were held here in 2006.

The name Ullevi roughly means "Ull's kingdom or temple" and relates to Ull, the god of games and play in Old Norse mythology.
