Olympic ice rink size

We receive inquiries for permanent ice skating rinks and mobile ice rinks on a daily basis, and very often we notice that the dimention variety of the ice rinks is not familiar to our prospects, especially when it comes to the Olympic ice rink size; we thought it would be helpful to write a short blog post with a few important points regarding this aspect. Normally, if you would like to build an ice rink for amusement & leisure, there is no maximum or minimum size, it all depends on the desire of the customers, the size of the community, the restrictions regarding the building, etc. The difference comes when an Olympic size ice rink is needed, especially if IIHF World Championship tournaments should take place on the surface. In Europe, the required dimention of the ice skating rink by the International Hockey Federation is 1.800 sqm: 60 metres (197′) long and 30 metres (98’5″) wide. But this is not the only rule that has to be respected, there is actually a full manual that can be found on the official website of the International Ice Hockey Federation called the “IIHF Official Rule Book”, the actual edition being the 2014 – 2018 one. What we as company Ice Business can do for you is send you a complete quotation for an Olympic size ice rink, for the right dimentions and the right ice hockey lining, so that you can be sure that all the requirements of the IIHF are 100% met. 🙂 Just send us an e-mail and we will be happy to provide it!
