Renovation[edit | edit source]
Due to its age and with an eye towards the 2009 IIHF World Championships, the arena was renovated. The holder invested about 100 million Swiss Francs into the extension and restoration of the building. The modification was finished by April 24, 2009, when the World Championships started. The VIP-zone was entirely rebuilt and the capacity there was extended by about 500. The total capacity is now 17,131 spectators.
