Arena work in Irkutsk in full swing!

The construction work of the new Arena Baikal in Irkutsk is in full swing! The main work at the facility is practically included in the schedule.

In March 2020 the World Championships Men will take place in the new “Arena Baikal”. The installation of the load-bearing wooden arches is planned to be completed in the end of August. There will be 12 arches mounted.  It is planned that two arches will be installed in each summer month. On May 29 the sixth arch construction appeared.

Now the constructor is drawing up a work plan for the water supply, sewerage and electricity networks, and ensuring control over the allocation of arena funding at the expense of the regional budget. Everyone involved in the construction project is set to open the Arena Baikal for bandy and speed skating sports in time for the World Championships of Bandy for men’s teams March 28-April 5, 2020.

Arena Baikal is growing!
