Ano Liosia Olympic Hall is a multi purpose and multi-sport indoor arena that is located in Ano Liosia, a suburb of Athens, Greece.[1] The arena was used to host to judo and wrestling at the 2004 Athens Summer Olympics.[2]

The arena's seating capacity for sporting events is 9,300 people, however, only 6,000 seats were made available to the public during the 2004 Summer Olympics.

History[edit]

After the 2004 Athens Summer Olympics, the venue became the site of various television productions, including the Greek version of the reality show So You Think You Can Dance. From 19 May to 6 June 2010, the arena hosted the Greek Ice Hockey Championship, for both men and women. The arena was originally scheduled to be the future home of the Hellenic Academy of Culture and Hellenic Digital Archive.[3][4]
