Bill Gray’s Regional Iceplex is a 2,500-seat, 170,000-square-foot (16,000 m2) non-profit indoor athletics facility in the Rochester, New York suburb of Brighton. Located on the campus of Monroe Community College, the arena was built in 1998. It is home to four regulation-size ice rinks for semi-professional, high school, and youth hockey teams' use. The iceplex houses youth hockey leagues from Rochester Youth Hockey, Rochester Edge, Rochester Alliance, Perinton Youth Hockey, Brighton Varsity hockey, Monroe Community College, Rochester Jr. Americans, Roc City Roller Derby,[1] Rochester Raiders and other local teams. The arena also serves as the Rochester Americans official practice facility, and the USA Paralympic Sled Hockey Team chose it as their official training site.

In 2008, 87 events were held at the facility, drawing nearly 33,000 players and spectators.[2]

The facility was known as the ESL Sports Centre through 2009, when ESL Federal Credit Union dropped its sponsorship.[3] From that point until April 2013, when Bill Gray's picked up sponsorship (with a 30-year agreement), the facility was known as the Sports Centre at MCC.
