Helsingin jäähalli

Helsinki Ice Hall (Finnish: Helsingin jäähalli, Swedish: Helsingfors ishall) is an indoor arena located in Helsinki, Finland. It is capable of holding 8,200 people.

It is the home arena for HIFK of the SM-liiga. It is sometimes called "Petoluola", Finnish for "The beast's cave", referring to the logo of HIFK: a red panther or the Old Hall of Helsinki as it is dated in comparison to Hartwall Areena, which is the largest indoor arena in the country.

Helsinki Ice Hall used to be the main arena for all important ice sports events, as well as indoor arena concerts, but after the construction of Turkuhalli and Hartwall Areena, many events take place in the newer arenas.

Nevertheless the Helsinki Ice Hall still remains an active arena for concerts, conferences, expos and sports events.
