STEEL ARÉNA is the most advanced and the only multipurpose hall in Slovakia.
Thanks to efforts made by Civic Association that had restored work on the L. Troják Ice-Hockey Arena after almost nine years, gates of the new STEEL ARÉNA were opened on February 24, 2006. Entire efforts resulted in a modern stall that, as we all hope, will be a city Košice´s pride and will serve to whole public.
STEEL ARÉNA is located in the city center and includes the Club Hotel, that will be directly interconnected with the hall after completion of the planned reconstruction. Through its capacity of 8373 seats, well built background with restaurant, bars, buffet network, forty VIP lounges and VIP zones, STEEL ARÉNA will offer respectful conditions for Košice´s ice-hockey development that will dominate among other sports, and allows organization of other sport, cultural and social events – mainly exhibitions, concerts, masterships and tournaments; various meetings, congresses and balls.
After 2011 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championhip we will be hosting the 2019 IIHF Ice Hockey Worl Championship again.
