The athletics hall was opened in 2016 and is currently the most modern athletics hall in the Czech Republic. It is mostly used by the athletics clubs, but it can also be used for a number of other sports activities.
The hall meets the standards of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF), allows for year-round training, and meets the conditions for holding the athletics competitions and international meetings of a winter indoor season.
It seats 1,012 spectators, with 8 places reserved for disabled persons. The athletics facilities include a 6-lane running track with a length of 200 metres, 8 straight lanes for sprints with a length of 60 metres, and sectors for the high jump, long jump, pole vault and shot put.
The hall has already held the men’s and women’s Czech Indoor Athletics Championships on more than one occasion. Every year, it holds the international athletics event Czech Indoor Gala and other interesting events in a number of other sports, such as the Czech Judo Cup, the International Karate Grand Prix, the Moravia Open in taekwondo, the European Jiu-Jitsu Championship, the Ostravsko-beskydská šedesátka fire-fighting sport contest, the combat sport gala evening Octagon Fight Club 5 and the Cheerleaders Cup Ostrava.
The athletics hall was used as a service facility for journalists on the occasion of the European Figure Skating Championships in 2017.
Once the indoor athletics season is over, the hall is used also for badminton, floorball and the general public.
