    A bit unclear yet but around 13500 for the Tampere one with 50 luxury boxes, 10500-1500 with 100 boxes for the Helsinki one and 6000-7000 for the Jyväskylä one.

    There have been no Liiga-level arenas built this millennium. I'll be surprised if they manage to build new arenas in Helsinki, Turku or Oulu before the '30s.

    The Helsinki one is at such a stage that while probably won't be ready for the next World Championships we host, at least soon after that. The new complex in Turku is planned to enter building stage in 2020.

    In fact the newest Liiga arena is from the 1980s, as the two 1990s ones belong to a KHL and a bankrupt organization.

    Reading the latest issue of Jääkiekkolehti, there's also a major renovation happening in Kuopio. Niiralan Monttu will have a new mediacube, led boards and ringside seats. Locker rooms and sound tech will also be updated. Everything should be done by 2020. The capacity will increase to 5300. The rink size will move to the hybrid size of 60 x 28 meters for next season.

    Whenever I visit the current Tampere-arena I really understand their eagerness to build a new one.

    Yes a legendary arena and unless I'm wrong the first ever in Finland but still so out of date.
