The history of Arena Klosters
Located in the centre of Klosters, the Arena was opened on 14 December 1996 as a multi-sports facility and restaurant. It is owned by the municipality of Klosters. In winter, the facilities include two ice-skating rinks and four rinks for curling and ice stock sport. In summer, there are tennis courts, a football pitch, and an open air swimming pool.
On 24 June 2010, a proposal was put forward to extend Arena Klosters. It was approved by the municipal council on 20 September 2010. The main arguments in support of the proposal were that an extension would:
- Increase sports centre capacity to accommodate tourism-related events, generating more overnight stays in Klosters.
- Provide urgently needed indoor facilities.
- Enhance the existing establishment and make the business more professional.
- Make use of municipal land and the existing infrastructure (energy network).
- Strengthen the long-standing tradition of tennis in Klosters and establish it as a year-round sport.
On 30 November 2014, the electorate in Klosters-Serneus overwhelmingly voted in favour of the loan to fund an extension of the sports centre to include an events and sports hall. The project cost a total of CHF 13 million.
Once the project had been approved by vote, the design work was put out to tender with construction due to start on 7 August 2015. The project architects were Albertin Partner GmbH in Haldenstein; the supervising architects were Ritter Schumacher AG in Chur; the general contractor was Ralbau AG in Chur. The groundbreaking ceremony for the extension took place on 5 October 2015.
Despite a tight construction schedule, the new building was ready, as planned, on 2 December 2016. Extending Arena Klosters to create two year-round sports and event halls represented a major expansion of the resort’s sports and event facilities.
The spaces – Arena 1, Arena 2 and the foyer – are suitable for a wide range of events. Thanks to their good indoor facilities, all kinds of cultural, sporting and entertainment events can now take place whatever the weather.
