Peace and Friendship Stadium
Peace and Friendship Stadium, known as S.E.F. after its Greek name (Stadio Erinis & Filias) is an indoor arena located in Faliro that hosted indoor volleyball at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece.
It had previously hosted various major international events, including the 1987 Men's European Basketball Championships and the 1998 FIBA World Basketball Championships.
Renovations for the Olympics commenced in April 2002 and were completed on June 30, 2004. The new stadium was officially opened on August 11, 2004, shortly before the opening of the games. The venue seats up to 13,200, though the public capacity was only 9,400 during the games. The arena is part of the Faliro Coastal Zone Olympic Sports Complex.
After the Olympics, the arena now hosts home games for the Olympiakos basketball club.
