a bold attitude.
The legendary Hakametsä Ice Stadium area gains a new life!
We are making the most comprehensive Sport Campus in the world – a unique city district.
Hakametsä, which is famous for its legendary ice stadium, will be renewed and serve its visitors better than before. It will expand into a unique cluster of exercise, sport and wellness, providing a versatile, world-class setting for elite athletes and amateurs, as well as for the activities of organisations and businesses.
The most fascinating cluster of sport and exercise of the future is awaiting!
What novelties will there be?
In addition to the old ice stadium, which will be renovated into a multipurpose arena, the area will house a modern arena for indoor ball games, business and office premises for auxiliary activities in the field, housing, as well as pleasant outdoor and green areas. For the first time, a development project combines a scene of elite sports and exercise – formed by private and public operators – with education, business activities, wellness and housing. The project leaders are Peab, YH Kodit and the City of Tampere.
