Ondrej Nepela Stadium

The venue of the Ice Hockey World Championship 2019 is the Ondrej Nepela Winter Stadium (former names – the Samsung Arena, ST Arena, T-Com Arena), the oldest ice hockey hall in Slovakia.

The oldest sprinkled ice area in Bratislava was put into operation in 1871. The first ice skating rink on today’s Trnava road began to be built on October 28, 1939. It was put into operation before Christmas 1940, the first official ice hockey meeting was held on 21 December 1940. The ice rink, however, was not covered, and the sector for spectators featured only 300 seats. The first tribunes were built between 1948 and 1949, thus increasing the capacity to 11,000 spectators. In 1958, the ice rink got covered for the European Figure Skating Championships and more than 4,000 seats were added.

It’s today’s capacity is 10,000 seats.
