But apart from the name, this is a great plan. Currently Hartwall Arena pretty much has the monopoly in what comes to big stage hockey events (with HK Arena in Turku getting whatever drops off the table). Between this new garden and the
upcoming arena in Tampere
, it'll do nothing but good for the hockey scene in Finland.
Agreed 100%. Except for the bolded part.
You really think the Tampere project is ever going to be finished? I'm more optimistic with the Espoo Football Stadium (in Tapiola) than with this neverending SimCity-dream in Tampere.
(and they're both very far from coming to reality).
Nevertheless, I hope they'd both succeed. That would haste the process of a "New Raksila" here in the north, which has been in the talks for years.
