The Arena at Gwinnett Center (formerly the Gwinnett Civic Center Arena and commonly known as the Gwinnett Arena) is an indoor arena in Duluth, Georgia, within the Atlanta metropolitan area. The arena was an expansion to the Gwinnett Center, which also includes a performing arts center and a convention center. It is the home of the Gwinnett Gladiators, an ice hockey team in the ECHL. Due to a scheduling conflict at the Atlanta Dream's ordinary home court of Philips Arena, the 2013 WNBA Finals will be played at the arena.[4]
