The new Kozani Arena is yet another example of building things "the Greek way". Its construction began almost five years ago and it still isn't finished! However, it now seems that the arena will be completed within the summer of 2005. It will be a much welcomed addition to the sports infrastructure of this city in northern Greece.
The total cost of the new Kozani Arena has been estimated to be € 3,155,000. It is being constructed in an area called Lefkovrysi, south of the city. The location lies by the road to Aeani, about 1.5 km after exiting Kozani.
The capacity of this new arena will be about 3,500. It will be able to host all indoor ball games (e.g. basketball, volleyball, handball etc), as well as gymnastics. A second indoor hall is being constructed next to the main arena. It will be used primarily for training purposes.
As mentioned above, Kozani Arena is expected to be ready before the start of the 2005-06 basketball season. If this happens, the A1 Division team of Makedonikos B.C. will move into the arena, leaving the small Kozani Indoor Hall, which they currently use as home.

Please note that all photos on this page were shot in November 2004.
