|«4 NATIONS» IСE SLEDGE HOCKEY TOURNAMENT (August-September 2013)|
The "Shayba" Arena is part of the complex of facilities operated by the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF). The complex includes the "Bolshoy" Ice Dome, the "Shayba" Arena and a training rink. All Ice Hockey venues are located in close proximity to one another, providing maximum comfort for athletes and guests of the Games.
The “Shayba” Arena is designed to accommodate 7,000 spectators. The venue will host Olympic ice hockey competitions and Paralympic ice sledge hockey competitions.
The “Shayba” Arena is a moveable venue, making it possible to be dismantled and transported for post-Games use as an Ice Palace in another Russian city.
It would be impossible to imagine a game of ice hockey without a "shayba" or puck and the name accurately portrays the purpose of the venue. As well as this, for Russians, shouting "Shaybu!" is a universal and familiar way of supporting hockey teams at the international championships. Therefore, this name represents the character of the "Russian" Winter Games.
