Ufa Arena

The Ufa Arena is a 7,950-seat multi-purpose arena in Ufa, Russia that opened in 2007. It has replaced Ice Palace Salavat Yulaev as the home of Russian Super League ice hockey team, Salavat Yulaev Ufa.

The first events in the arena were the first two games of the 2007 Super Series, a hockey series between Canada and Russia juniors. There were issues during the game in which fog was building up over the ice surface during the game, as the ice had been chilled but the air conditioning was not yet functional because the building was incomplete at the time.

The arena is scheduled to be the primary venue for the 2013 IIHF World U20 Championship, which will be played in the last week of December 2012 and the first week of January 2013.
