Both hosting venues of the 2018 Ice Hockey U18 World Championship bring a new level of fan experience


April 24, 2018 - Chelyabinsk, Magnitogorsk, Russia

The 2018 IIHF Ice Hockey U18 World Championship which started last week have returned after one year to venues equipped with the leading Colosseo technologies – this time in two major KHL arenas in Russia.

Both venues - Arena Metallurg and Traktor Arena – recently received a major technology boost when they installed the market leading Colosseo technologies in the form of a complete turnkey solution. Along with the new level of fan experience during KHL games, both venues are now also ready to serve any major international event at the highest possible level.

The fans at both venues now enjoy an impressive game show with instant replays, highlights, real-time stats and animations that are shown on the brand new Colosseo center-hung videoboards which offers crisp imagery from any angle. The one in Traktor Arena is also the largest within the entire KHL with over 140sqm of total LED canvas and a unique rectangular design.

Game show presentation along with the whole multimedia management at both venues is under the control of the Colosseo Single Media Platform while IIHF referees have the Colosseo Video Goal Judge at their disposal which is a proven and well-known video analysis software solution for fast judgment of any disputable moment at the goalmouth or at ice level, that was also officially honored by the IIHF itself.

Colosseo is taking part in the IIHF World Championships for the eighth straight year which demonstrates the reliability and quality of our technology and the important role it serves for event organizers. We wish the best of luck to all participating teams and many unforgettable moments for the fans!
