Hala Olivia is an arena in Gdańsk, Poland. It was designed by Maciej Gintowt and Maciej Krasinski. Building was started on 1965, and it opened on December 16, 1972.[1] It is primarily used for ice hockey and is the home of Stoczniowiec Gdansk. The basketball club Prokom Gdynia also used the facility for home Euroleague fixtures. Hala Olivia opened in 1970 and holds 5,500 people. The buildings exterior was completely renovated in 2016.[2] Renovations on the interior are ongoing. This is one of the few remaining sports arenas left of this particular communist style modernism. Two other examples of this design style are the closed Vilnius Palace of Concerts and Sports in Vilnius Lithuania, and the now destroyed Volgar Sports Palace in Tolyatti, Russia.

The arena hosted a preliminary round group of the EuroBasket 2009.[3] It is located near the University of Gdańsk.
