|Nea Smyrni Indoor Hall|
Location: This indoor hall is located in the Nea Smyrni district, 4 km south of the Athens city centre, at the intersection of Artakis and Ethnikis Stegis streets. The best way to get there is by using the tram (either line 4 or 5). Get off at "Aegeou" stop and walk uphill along Aegeou Street, towards Ano Nea Smyrni. 500m later you will come to Artakis Street, where you must turn right. In 200m you will be outside the indoor hall.
|Built in: 1979|
More data: Nea Smyrni Indoor Hall is not suitable today for a club like Panionios. It is very small, looks really outdated and lacks modern amenities for both the fans and the athletes. This is why the club and the local authorities have long been asking for it to be replaced. This may happen either by the total reconstruction and expansion of the existing building or by the construction of a new arena somewhere in the vicinity. Plans above depict a new modern arena with a capacity of approximately 5,000 spectators. The cost for its construction (which is most likely to be state-funded) is estimated at € 5 million.
The indoor hall is owned by the Municipality of Nea Smyrni.
