The Minsk-Arena Complex is unique in its complexity and functionality not only in Belarus but also in Europe. It includes a multi-sports and entertainment arena for 15,000 spectators (making it the largest full-time arena in use by a Kontinental Hockey League team), a stadium for speed skating as well as for bandy for up to 3,000 spectators and a velodrome at 2,000 spectators.
Depeche Mode performed at the stadium on 29 July 2013 and on 28 February 2014 during their Delta Machine Tour, in front of a total sold out crowd of 24,523 people. They will perform again for their Global Spirit Tour.
The French singer Mylène Farmer performed on 27 October 2013.
One of the primary uses of the facility is ice hockey, as the building is the home rink of HC Dinamo Minsk of the Kontinental Hockey League. The arena's official opening was held on 30 January 2010 when the 2nd Kontinental Hockey League All-Star Game was held there. The first match in the facility, however, had already been played by Dinamo Minsk on 14 January 2010 against Metallurg Magnitogorsk. Two more KHL regular-season games were scheduled in January before the official opening: against Avtomobilist on 16 January and against Traktor on 18 January.
The Belarusian Bandy Federation is working towards creating a professional team that would play in the Russian Bandy Super League, with home matches in Minsk-Arena. Minsk was a candidate for a while to host the 2015 Bandy World Championship. For a while there were also speculations about the 2018 Bandy World Championship.
