Čair Sports Center (Serbian: Спортски центар Чаир / Sportski centar Čair), known locally as Čair Hall (Serbian: Хала Чаир / Hala Čair) is an indoor sporting arena located in Niš, Serbia. The seating capacity of the arena is 4,000 for sports events and 6,500 at concerts.[2] It is home to the KK Konstantin basketball team, RK Železničar 1949 handball team and OK Niš volleyball team.

Reconstruction[edit]

The sports centre was completely reconstructed in 2011 as it was previously seen unfit to host the group stage of 2012 European Men's Handball Championship. The reconstruction has been done according to highest European standards and criteria submitted by EHF, currently making Čair the most modern sporting hall in Serbia. It is fully equipped to host the biggest sports events. It satisfies high standards of sports federations referring to provision of the unhampered communication between the organizers, spectators, sportsmen and media.

The first match played in the Hall since it was reconstructed was between the senior women’s handball national teams of Serbia and Greece, on October 19, 2011 within EHF for Women 2012 Championship Qualifications.
