In this way the Corona epidemic affects the activity of Gatorade Center

Restrictions on public events will continue at least until 26.4.2021

How have the restrictions affected the activity of the Center?

Gatorade Center has been in the center of pulic events for decades and the Center is known as the venue for large public events and also as the home hall of the traditional ice hockey team TPS. When we lived in time before the coronavirus, the multipurpose Center in Turku was full of action and bustle. Lots of multicultural events and best of all; people filled with joy.

The experiences of the Center created intoxication of the audience, rousing concerts, moments by the ice hockey rink that will forever be remembered and much more. It brought together people who share a common interest, touchable joy and excitement time after time, when the favorite artist of the audience walked on stage, when the puck was dropped on ice or when the buzzer rang after the home team scored a goal.

This is how it was, until from December 2019 the COVID-19 named virus from China’s Wuhan’s area spread around the world and also arrived in Finland. Because of the strict restrictons of the ongoing pandemic the doors of the Center were eventually closed from the audience to minimize the infection situaton.

Gatorade Center strictly adheres to the restrictions set by the Southwest Finland's Regional Administraive Agency and wants to play its part in slowing down the aggravation of the infection. Because of the restrictions, a big part of the main activity of the Center has been suspended. Events can’t be arranged and the dates has been postponed. 

The league matches of Turun Palloseura will continue normally towards the Playoffs. The League continues taking into account regional restrictive measures in accordance with a previosuly published progam. The regional restriction measures do not affect the League regular season program. Matches are played without audience as the regional audience restrictions continues. TPS has been in contact with season ticket holders and partners about this.

TPS-lunch will be suspended for now, starting 29.3.2021


Looking forward to the future!
