The Hockey Arena in Poprad along with the Spis Arena in Spisska Nova Ves, both in Slovakia are the hosting venues of this year’s Ice Hockey U18 World Championship, an annual event organized by the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) for national U18 ice hockey teams from around the world.

Both hosting venues were one of the first Colosseo customers back in 2009 and 2010 and recently underwent technological upgrades. Stadium operators now have the latest generation of the leading integrated multimedia control system – Colosseo Single Media Platform - along with Colosseo timekeeping, scoring, statistical solution and LED displays.
The venues also feature a Colosseo Video Goal Judge, an essential technology for an IIHF hockey events and hockey referees to analyse and make rulings on controversial moments that occur during games.
