Hockey 101: Inside the 2018 Olympic venues

PyeongChang organizers have built two new houses of hockey for the 2018 Olympic Winter Games

Olympic hockey has two new homes built especially for the 2018 PyeongChang Olympic Winter Games.

The first is the 10,000 seat Gangneung Hockey Centre, situated in the Gangneung Coastal Cluster, overlooking the Sea of Japan on South Korea’s east coast. The Gangneung Coastal Cluster also features venues for figure skating, speed skating and short track.

Roughly three miles away, the second venue for hockey, named after the Catholic university campus on which it sits, Kwandong Hockey Centre offers a more intimate, 6,000 seat venue for Olympic spectators.
