Töölö Sports HallEdit profile
Töölö Sports Hall (Finnish: Töölön kisahalli, Swedish: Tölö sporthall) is a sports venue located in the Töölö district of Helsinki, Finland. It was built in 1935 as Messuhalli (Exhibition Hall). It is located near the Olympic Stadium, the Opera House, and the Finnair Stadium.
The hall was originally a venue for concerts, banquets and sporting events, but is now used only for training and competition in various sports.
In preparation for the 1952 Summer Olympics the building was expanded on the northern side.
During the Olympics gymnastics, wrestling, boxing and weightlifting events as well as the basketball finals were held at the venue.
In 1975 the hall was moved to Helsinki city ownership and got its current name. It is the home arena of the basketball team Torpan Pojat.
