The Urhea Sports Campus in Helsinki was extended with an additional building in summer 2021, containing training and competition halls for several Olympic sports. From 14.000 m² total space, 8.000 m² are dedicated to practical sport, which will be used by 10.000 athletes and students that are studying at the connected Sports High-School and/or living at the residential building “Urhea Home”.

The new National Training Center for Artistic Gymnastics is located in the second basement and was developed by SPIETH Gymnastics GmbH in close cooperation with the Finnish Gymnastics Federation and realized together with the local SPIETH dealer “Kerko Group Oy”. Within one month 170 m² pit, 187 m³ pit foam and 398 m² Landing Mats had been installed. In total eight truck loads full of SPIETH equipment were transported to Helsinki.

Today the gym is the daily training centre for the members of the Finnish Gymnastics National Team and a state of the art example for a modern and efficient gymnastics training centre. Under the flag of the Finnish Olympic Committee, the Urhea Campus is now the most significant Sports Complex throughout Finland. Within six floors new national training centres have been built for following sports: Artistic Gymnastics, Rhythmic Gymnastics, Track and Field, Judo, Wrestling and Basketball.
