Cardiff Arena


Cardiff Arena

:"Not to be confused with Cardiff International Arena in Cardiff city centre, which is a multi-purpose arena."

The Cardiff Arena is a temporary ice rink in Cardiff Bay, Cardiff, Wales. It has a capacity of 2,500 for ice hockey and is home to the Cardiff Devils.

The ice rink is a prefabricated structure constructed in Finland. Assembly began in 2006 and after a number of delays opened on 6 December 2006 when the Devils hosted the Manchester Phoenix (who, coincidentally, were also waiting for a similar venue to be completed) in an Elite Ice Hockey League fixture. The Devils won the game 7-4 while Manchester's Tony Hand became the first player to score a goal at the rink.

Cardiff Arena is operated by Planet Ice and is a temporary structure that will remain open until the completion of a new arena. [ [http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/wales/south_east/6203652.stm Ice problems stop Devils' match] ]
