The Shaiba arena is one of the most important facilities built for the XXII Winter Olympic Games in Sochi. It is considered the second largest ice stadium in the Olympic Park after the Bolshoi Palace. The arena was tested during the 2013 World Junior Championships and the Four Nations International Sledge Hockey Tournament, a paralympic sport where athletes sled on ice.

During the Olympic Games, ice hockey competitions were held here, as well as competitions in the same sledge hockey, but already within the framework of the Paralympic Games, which started, as you know, immediately after the XXII Olympiad. The stadium was built in such a way that the design would allow it to be disassembled and transported to another city. At the moment, the fate of the arena has not been decided, but, most likely, the stadium will remain in Sochi. Firstly, there were difficulties with dismantling the lower part of the structure, and secondly, at the end of 2013, the Russian Ministry of Sports prepared a draft order on the creation of an All-Russian Children's Sports and Recreation Center on the basis of the stadium, that is, the city needs the arena for further use.
