Helsinki has two ice hockey teams and two ice halls. Hartwall Areena is the newer and bigger one and is home arena for Jokerit ice hockey team. The capacity of this hall is much bigger than the one of the old hall but some claim that the atmosphere is not tight enough in here. Anyway, it is the most used inside Arena in Helsinki for all kinds of events.
It is a large multifunctional indoor arena and it gets its name from its largest sponsor, the beverage company Hartwall, also based in Helsinki.
The arena was built to be ready for the Ice Hockey World Championships in 1997 and was delivered by the constructor on April 11, 1997. The building is elliptical, 153 metres long and 123 metres wide. 37 meters under ground there is a practice arena which is used by many hockey teams.
Total capacity in ice hockey games is 13,349 (all seats). The arena is convertible for various events.
Easiest way to get here is to come by train. 5min from Helsinki central station is “Pasila” station where all trains stop independent of the type of the train or where they are going. Second option is tram 7 which also takes you pretty close but a bit slower if your origin is the city center.
Depending on the venue. For example tickets to Jokerit ice hockey games vary from 13€ to 30€ depending on the seat. Children 9€ (ages 7-16), Children under 7 for free (with parents).
