Lahden stadion (Lahti stadium) is the only stadium in which I have seen both a cross-country ski race, a ski jumping competition and a football match! The stadium is located in walking distance from the city center of Lahti. The ski-jump hill is to be seen from most of the city. When I went to the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships 2017, it was freezing cold. But the atmosphere in the stands were second to none.
It was also quite chilly for the spring football match versus Honka. Not too many in the stands and the guests won it comfortable. All-in-all a very nice stadium complex. Well worth a visit!
