Sports, meetings, events

PielisAreena's maximum capacity is 2700 persons, but it is easily adapted for smaller events such as birthday parties or hen/bachelor parties. We can provide programmes, catering and other facilities tailor-made to the customer's requirements.

In organising your event we can offer the following advantages:

  • Flexibility: Built in 2012, the PielisAreena’s interior walls can be adapted to suit your needs. Similarly the floor area is designed for multi-use. It can easily be protected with suitable coverings which permit use of outdoor footwear. The Hall has a maximum length of 40 metres but can easily be divided into 3 sections of 13.5 x 21m, with additional seating for up to 450 spectators.
  • Two tourist centres as neighbours: The Hyvärilä Youth and Holiday Centre and Bomba Holiday Resort offer a broad range of services including accommodation, catering and saunas close at hand.
  • Location: PielisAreena lies close to all the services of the town of Nurmes,
  • Service: Let us suggest how you can make the best use of our facilities in combination with those of the other local service providers of accommodation, programmes, and catering.
  • Price-quality: Our services have had a good reception and we have many repeat customers.


The PielisAreena Service Desk is opposite the Sports Hall at the Hyvärilä Youth and Holiday Centre’s Hotel Kartanohotelli during the hotel’s opening hours.
