The Cool Insuring Arena formerly the Glens Falls Civic Center is a 4,806-seat multi-purpose arena located in downtown Glens Falls, New York that currently serves as the home of the Adirondack Phantoms of the American Hockey League. Built in 1979, it was originally the home of the Adirondack Red Wings, AHL affiliate of the Detroit Red Wings. For the 2007–08 AHL season and 2008–09 AHL season, the nearby Albany River Rats played four home games in Glens Falls in order to gauge the community's interest in whether an American Hockey League franchise could relocate to Glens Falls. City government officials and arena management were looking into the possibility of acquiring a franchise to play in the Civic Center. In April 2008, the building became one of the management properties of Global Spectrum for the city of Glens Falls, New York. The Philadelphia Phantoms relocated here to become the Adirondack Phantoms in 2009.
The arena was renamed the Cool Insuring Arena on July 12, 2017 when a sponsorship deal was reached with arena ownership.
