The Tondiraba Ice Arena is now open for business, and hosted the Tallinn Cup basketball tournament over the last few days.

The Estonian national team won the championship Wednesday night with a 77-65 victory over the US East Coast All-Stars, a traveling squad of American collegiate players.

The 15,200 square meter facility in Lasnamäe is configured for hockey, leaving the basketball court quite isolated from the crowd of about 1,000 during the game. However, the tournament this week gave locals a chance to check out the new facility.

Aside from the double-decker seating overlooking the main arena, the facility has two practice rinks and curling rinks, where basketball and volleyball tournaments and concerts can be staged. The building has a reinforced concrete frame, with reinforced concrete walls and laminated timber girders.

The center arena can seat about 5,000, and cost 27 million euros.
