HIPPOS2020

A passion for sport, physical recreation and well-being

Liikuntapuiston ihmisiä. Hannu Rainamo When completed, Hippos2020 will be a centre of sport, physical recreation and well-being in the heart of Jyväskylä that is unique by international standards. The area will feature sports research and education as well as expertise in competitive sport together with first-class facilities for both enthusiasts and top-level athletes – indeed for all those interested in sport, wellness services related to physical activity, new experiences and big events.

Sport, physical recreation and well-being form one of Jyväskylä’s key branches. The city is home to Finland’s only Faculty of Sport and Health Sciences, in addition to which KIHU [Research Institute for Olympic Sports] and Likes [Research Center for Sport and Health Sciences] also operate in Jyväskylä. At the Hippos of the future this extensive research and measurement expertise will benefit not only professional athletes but made accessible and available to enthusiasts as well. Today Hippos is an area already used for training purposes by hundreds of successful sports clubs, and in the future their number is set to increase significantly!

HIPPOS WILL BE TRANSFORMED INTO FINLAND’S LARGEST COMPLEX DEDICATED TO PHYSICAL RECREATION AND SPORT, BOTH AMATEUR AND PROFESSIONAL.

Hippos will be transformed into Finland’s largest complex dedicated to physical recreation and sport, including the professional variety. In addition to offering excellent facilities and an extensive range of variety the area is set to become a centre for sport and wellness tourism offering everything from first-class indoor and outdoor venues to wellness services. Accommodation, shops, events and housing also form a natural part of the area’s sporty, modern identity.

The scale of the project is about 120 000 floor square metres and the value of investments in the Hippos2020 project is approximately EUR 270–320 M. A development company has already been established to oversee the project. Already in the first stage, centred around the development company, private funding is being employed.
