The Ice Cube Curling Center (Russian: Керлинговый Центр Ледяной куб) is a 3,000-seat multi-purpose arena in Sochi, Russia, that opened in 2012. [1] It is a component of the Sochi Olympic Park.

It hosted all the curling events at the 2014 Winter Olympics and the wheelchair curling events at the 2014 Winter Paralympics.[1] It cost $14.0 million to build the venue, including the temporary works for the Olympics and Paralympics. It opened in 2012.[1] After the 2014 games, it will remain a sports arena. The venue is a portable venue, designed so that it could possibly be re-located after the end of the games.[1]
