    Basketball will take center stage from July 9 to July 17 at the Fonix Hall, which will have a seating capacity of 5,898 people.

  • The Olah Gabor Sports Hall has a seating capacity of 1,500 and will be used for some of the games at the FIBA U17 Women's Basketball World Cup.

    Originally constructed in 1978, it was renovated in 2013. It most recently served as one of the venues for the FIBA U19 Women's Basketball World Cup 2021.

    Olah Gabor was a renowned poet from Debrecen. Badminton is among the other sports played at the facility.
