They don't play professionally. Maybe the Russian 'KHL' may eventually have a team in LT and then it would be in Vilniuas in any case. The floor space is technically there if you had to do it. If it is anything like Madison Sq. Gardens you just reduce the capacity by 2 or 3 thousands of the hoops stadium capacity. All the seats around the floor are taken away.

I doubt it, though. Too small a population to support pro hockey on top of pro hoops.

This currency board collapse will certainly slow things down in the Baltics for a while on top of the other shit happening.

Lithuania is like Slovenia. I don't know many other European countries where football isn't sport nr. 1. Basketball rules! Žalgiris and Olimpija are eternal green powers!

In Greece and Turkey, basketball is quite popular. Also Israel(although not technically in Europe).

Not much snow in Lithuania. Must be the global warming.

When I was there in the winter of 2000/2001 we were skiing the streets of Vilniaus. Hockey was being played on the ponds.

Well, I was more curious to know if they will install hockey equipment already at construction time

It is not that difficult to do in anycase if ever there was a need. They did it recently at an open air baseball stadium in Chicago.

You basically need the space, the boards and perspex surrounding the playing surface and refridgeration pipes which go in the surface which you then flood with water, leave overnight and hey presto, instant hockey arena.
