History

Tondiraba Ice Rink was opened in August 2014 as the first large building of the Tondiraba Sports Complex. It has a main arena, two practice rinks and a curling rink. The main arena can be used for sports including figure skating, ice hockey, short track speed skating, volleyball, handball, gymnastics and also concerts.

The ISU World Junior Figure Skating Championships 2015, held from 2 March to 8 March that year, claimed to be the first championship held in the complex. [4] However, the 2015 World Junior Curling Championships logically deserves this title as despite concluding on the same date, it began several days earlier on 28 February. [5] [6]

One Finnish SM-Liiga hockey match has been played in the Tondiraba Ice Hall between HPK and Pelicans, on 27 January 2018. HPK won the game 3–4 after the shootout. [7]

2018 European Curling Championships are held in Tondiraba from 16–24 November.
