The South Tyrolean company won an international tender to build a mobile ice rink in the 17,000-seat Coca-Cola Stadium in Dubai. Beginning with this weekend, a KHL League match and an ice show with a star casting took place for the first time on South Tyrolean ice rink technology. An absolute highlight for the Middle East.

The Coca-Cola Arena in Dubai is the first and largest fully air-conditioned multi-purpose arena in the Middle East and the only arena in the region that operates all year. With a capacity of 17,000, the Coca-Cola Arena can host the biggest and best shows in the world – now also events on ice. Thanks to Intercom Dr. Leitner’s sophisticated ice rink technology, it was possible to set up a mobile ice rink within the shortest time, on which the Dubai Ice Show is now being staged for the very first time.

Within a single working week, Intercom Dr. Leitner realized the entire ice technology as well as the ice surface. “Our team did a fantastic job – from planning to realization on site” says Christof Leitner, CEO of Intercom Dr. Leitner. “In just five days with 30°C outside and 20°C inside temperatures, the technology and every single move had to be spot on. Because the requirements of such a high-profile event is just one: the best ever ice quality – this fits our quality standard too.”

The Dubai Ice Show started on Dec. 03, with an official match of the Kontinental Hockey League between the two top teams: the recent winner of the Gagarin Cup “Avangard” Omsk and the most awarded KHL club “Ak Bars” Kazan. On Dec. 04 & 05. 2021 followed the theatrical ice show “Sleeping Beauty” with Olympic figure skating champions Tatyana Navka and Alina Zagitova.

“We thank Intercom Dr. Leitner and his entire team for the high quality result and extremely professional realization,” says Alexander Atamanenko, Director of the Parade Hockey Club Avangard and at the same time organizer of the Ice Show. “I was surprised that it was possible to realize such a perfect ice surface for a KHL hockey match as well as a top-class ice show in such a short time.”
