Additional info about the venue

Tampere ice stadium was built in 1965, the first ice stadium in Finland. Ice is in place generally from late July to April-May. Outside of those times or otherwise by agreement, the venue can be used for other sports, concerts, trade fairs and public events.

During ice season, the stadium has a capacity of 7595 (6399 seats, 927 standing, 269 in VIP lounges); for other events, the capacity depends on the event.

The ice stadium complex also includes two training facilities, the 800-person Hakametsä 2 and the smaller Hakametsä 3.


Right next door to Tampere ice stadium lies the sports/event facility Tampere Arena; the two can be combined for many events.

Tampere ice stadium will gradually undergo a change as the new state-of-the-art Multipurpose Arena is completed in 2021. The two local National League hockey teams will move to the new Multipurpose Arena.



The ice stadium has a 1000-car parking lot.

It is easy to reach by public transport and is located about 3 to 3,5 kilometres from the center of Tampere.
