Olympic Ice Sport Centre

The ice stadium at Oberwiesenfeld opened in 1967 as the first sports centre on the site of what would later become the Olympic Park. It was the venue for table tennis world championships, boxing competitions and basketball matches - but above all, the Olympic Ice Sports Centre was the home arena for the ice hockey cracks of EHC Red Bull Munich until its closure in spring 2024, who will be hunting for goals in the new SAP Garden in future. The training hall will now temporarily become an action sports centre.

When construction began in April 1965, the idea of Munich bidding for the 1972 Summer Games was still a long way off. And when the ice stadium was opened in 1967 with a match between the FC Bayern (!) and SC Riessersee ice hockey teams, propeller planes were still taking off and landing next door at Oberwiesenfeld airfield. In 1969, the hall was the venue for the World Table Tennis Championships, in 1972 the boxers fought for Olympic medals here - and in the 2010/2011 season, FC Bayern's basketball team laid the foundations for their promotion to the Bundesliga here. Over the decades, the ice sports centre has been home to many of Munich's top ice hockey clubs, from EHC 1970 to EC Hedos, the Munich Barons and EHC Red Bull Munich. Until a final decision is made on the future of the now closed ice sports centre, the training hall and, a little later, the ice stadium will be used as an action sports centre from spring/summer 2025, with bouldering, a ninja course and many other facilities..
