Capitol Inside

Bob Suter's Capitol Ice Arena is a two sheet ice arena complex located in Middleton, Wisconsin.  The main arena has a capacity of 1,300.  The arena has been the training facility for the Madison Capitols of the United States Hockey League.  The arena became the home of the team for the 2017-18 season when the team was unable to reach a lease agreement with the Hartmeyer Ice Arena after intending to move their home games from the Alliant Energy Center prior to the 2017-18 season.

The facility is named after Bob Suter who was a resident of Middleton and was a member of the 1980 United States national ice hockey team which won the Gold Medal at the 1980 Winter Olympic Games completing the Miracle on Ice.  He passed away September 9, 2014 at the age of 57 of a heart attack suffered at the arena.  The arena was renamed in July of 2015.
