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 2004 Olympics.

History[edit]

After the 2004 Summer Olympics, the indoor facility was partially converted into a 3,000 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 mainly used for gymnastics competitions,[2] and at times to host basketball games of the Greek club Peristeri.

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