Turku’s Gatorade Center is an events venue that’s been a fixture in the city for almost 30 years, and game-day is still a winning experience. In the home venue for TPS ice-hockey team you can experience the slow-motion replays from the largest media cube in the Nordic region, even if you’re in the bar. Other major events, such as the Agility World Championships, are also staged here.
The hall’s own kitchen offers up sushi, hotdogs or even three course evening meals. At the TPS lunch you can eat like a hockey player. During games, in the popular Honey World kids can climb high on the climbing wall as well as enjoy other activities.
Sports seen gliding across the ice at Marli Areena include the TUTO Hockey team’s championship matches as well as figure and synchronized skating. The good old Kupittaa atmosphere never disappoints, with the chance to get close to the events alongside a few thousand other spectators.
Marli Areena is centrally located in the eastern part of Turku, in Finland’s oldest and largest urban park, Kupittaa. The area has a long sporting history, where legends of the ice have been seen since the 1960’s.
