After a year and a half of construction, the new 400m speed skating rink was inaugurated in Chemnitz on Sunday. The approximately 50-year-old sports facility has now been replaced by a new facility suitable for competitions.
In addition, the ice oval received an additional indoor surface. This can be used as an ice hockey surface in winter operation and as a roller hockey surface in summer operation. A new function building and the timekeeping pulpit were built and the technology was modernized.
