Bolshoy Ice Dome and Shayba Arena

Bolshoy Ice Dome and Shayba Arena

With a name meaning “big”, the Ice Dome is the larger of the two hockey venues and is based on the image of a frozen drop.  The second venue has a truly hockey-appropriate name, translating to “puck”.

Bolshoy Ice Dome

Capacity: 12,000

After the Games it will serve as an ultra-modern multi-purpose sports and entertainment centre. The name Bolshoy is familiar to many people from other countries for its association with the Bolshoy Theatre and Bolshoy Ballet.

Shayba Arena

Capacity: 7000

For Russians, shouting “Shaybu!” is a universal and familiar way to support hockey teams in international events.

The Canadian women’s hockey team played two games against the Russians in September 2013.
