This is the competition rink for the ISU Four Continents Figure Skating Championships 2016
The Taipei Arena, formerly known as the Taipei Municipal Baseball Stadium, is located in the Songshan District at the intersection of Dunhua North Rd. and Nanjing East Rd. At the end of the year 2000, the Taipei City government decided to replace the ballpark with a 15,000-seat multipurpose stadium. Construction began on November 12, 2001 and was completed on July 27, 2005. The stadium officially opened for use on December 1, 2005 and was named the “Taipei Arena.”
The Taipei Arena is an important indoor facility within the city of Taipei’s overall exercise facility construction plan. The building is divided into the main hall and subsidiary arena. The main hall is comprised of 2 underground levels and 5 reinforced concrete levels above ground, covering an area of approximately 90,900 square meters. The interior floor of the main hall is 76m long and 41.5m wide and about 60m X 29.5m when all retractable seats are fully extended. When needed, the center floor can be completely frozen and become a standard indoor arena for sports or other events held on ice. The arena can be used for a variety of purposes based on need. Because of this, the arena was able to host top of the line racing competitions held by SportAccord (International Sports Federations) and is also in hot demand by both domestic and international arts groups who compete to rent it out for a variety of shows.
The Taipei Arena is equipped with ramps, handicapped accessible toilets, electric wheelchair charging services, an unobstructed viewing platform, dedicated parking spaces for handicapped persons, and other services necessary to meet the needs of people with reduced mobility.
■ the information counter on the first floor provides a wheelchair service as well as professional assistance when entering and exiting the arena.
