is the common nickname for the ice hockey
arena in Kuopio
which is also the home arena of KalPa
. The name is derived from the location of the arena, which is in the Niirala
part of Kuopio, more specifically at the bottom of a small excavation in that area (monttu
means excavation in Finnish).
Niiralan monttu can hold the maximum amount of 5165 spectators in the stands.
