Traktor Ice Arena is an indoor sporting arena located in Chelyabinsk, Russia. It is used for various indoor events and is the home arena of the Traktor Chelyabinsk of the Kontinental Hockey League. The capacity of the arena is 7,500 spectators. It replaced Yunost Sport Palace as the home of Traktor.

Construction[edit]

The arena was designed by a Swedish company Skanska that previously worked on Atlant's Mytishchi Arena. Construction began in spring 2007 and was originally expected to finish by the 2008-09 season. But due to subsequent construction problems the official opening was rescheduled for January 2009. The first hockey game on the new stadium was played against Metallurg Magnitogorsk, it was won by Traktor 3-2.

On 15 February 2013, the arena was damaged by the blast wave from the explosion of the Chelyabinsk meteor.
