Samsung Arena, part of Ondrej Nepela Winter Sports Stadium, is an arena in Bratislava, Slovakia. It is primarily used for ice hockey and it is the home arena of HC Slovan Bratislava. It opened in 1940 and holds 8,350 people as of 2007. In the past Samsung arena was called ST Arena and T-Com Arena.

The Stadium is named in honour of Ondrej Nepela, Slovak figure skater who competed for Czechoslovakia in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and he is the 1972 Winter Olympics figure skating winner.

An NHL preseason game was held at the Samsung Arena between HC Slovan Bratislava and the Tampa Bay Lightning on September 30, 2008. Tampa Bay won 3-2 in overtime.

Samsung Arena will be replaced by Apollo Arena Bratislava, which is scheduled to open in 2010.
