The Coliseum is a sports facility that hosts a multitude of participants. Known for its aquatic area and ice rinks, it actually has many other strings to its bow. This central sporting area is located at 27, rue Caumartin, Amiens (France) in the heart of the city. This large sports complex, built in 1996, features two rinks where Amiens’ ice hockey players are developing, several swimming pools including an Olympic pool, and a sports hall (gymnasium) that mainly hosts handball and volleyball matches. A weights room (weightlifting), a dojo and a choreography room complete the facilities. It hosts many sporting events. The resident clubs’ national competitions take place here every weekend. But this structure can also accommodate larger events and, in particular, in 2018 it welcomed the teams of the 105th Tour de France.
