The hall was the site of the boxing events at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece.[1] The venue originally seated 8,400, though it had a public capacity of only 5,600 for the Olympics.

History[edit]

After the 2004 Olympics, the facility was partially converted into a 3,00 seat outdoor football pitch. This lowered the seating capacity of the indoor arena from 8,400 to 2,305. The indoor arena has since been used for gymnastics competitions.[2]

Since the summer of 2007, the outdoor football pitch has been used as a training center by Atromitos F.C..[3]
