The Danbury Arena is a 3,050-seat multi-purpose arena in Danbury, Connecticut. It was built in 1999 and renovated and expanded in 2004. The Danbury Arena was the former home of the Danbury Trashers of the United Hockey League from 2004–2006, and the New England Stars of the North Eastern Hockey League from 2006-2007. In 2008, the Danbury Mad Hatters of the Eastern Professional Hockey League signed a lease with the Arena, allowing the team to be a tenant.[2] On December 27, 2009, the newly formed Federal Hockey League announced that the Danbury Arena would be home to the Danbury Whalers, bringing back the coveted Whalers back to Connecticut in a different form. The team is owned by Danbury Whalers LLC, Chairman.[3]
