Valascia is an indoor sporting arena located in Ambrì, Switzerland. The capacity of the arena is 6,500 and was built in 1959. It is the home arena of the HC Ambri-Piotta ice hockey team of the National League A (NLA). The ends of arena are open air, making a hockey being played there partially outdoor.

The team is set to move into a newly built arena within the same area in the near future. The Valascia will then be demolished as it is located in a potential avalanche path. Construction for the new arena is scheduled to begin in July 2017 and should be completed in time for the 2019-20 NLA season.[1][2][3]
