Watching Hockey In Malaysia At The Southeast Asian Games

from Martin Merk of IIHF.com,

KUALA LUMPUR – For the first time in the 58-year-old history of the Southeast Asian Games ice hockey will be included in the 29th edition of the multi-sport event that starts with tomorrow’s opening ceremony in the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur.

With the historic addition of three winter sports disciplines – ice hockey, figure skating and short track speed skating – the 29th Southeast Asian Games will include 47 sports. All ice sports will be played at the new Malaysia National Ice Skating Stadium (MYNISS). The international-size ice rink opened in time for the SEA Games at the yet-to-be-completed Empire City mall in the Damansara area located next to Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya.

Although the ice rink is built in a mall, it’s not just one of many small rinks surrounded by shops as they exist throughout the continent. The ice sheet is 60 on 30 metres big, the rink has four big dressing rooms, rooms for officials and coaches, a jumbotron and a seating capacity for 700 spectators according to Susan Loh, the General Secretary of the Malaysia Ice Hockey Federation.
