The Sudbury Community Arena is a multi-purpose arena in the downtown core of Sudbury, Ontario, Canada. It was built in 1951. It is home to the Sudbury Wolves of the Ontario Hockey League. It has an ice size of 200' x 85', with a capacity of 4,600 seated, 5,100 standing and is wheelchair accessible.
During the Summer of 2007 the arena underwent extensive renovations which added 12 private boxes and a new club seating section with padded seats and refreshments services along with new washrooms, concession stand and lounge. Seats have been sacrificed to make way for the improvements. Standing room capacity has shrunk from 1,000 to 500, while seating capacity has dropped by 150. The new arena capacity, with standing room patrons, is now 5,100, down from 5,750.
Every time the Wolves score a goal, a taxidermic wolf rolls out on a pulley system to howl at the opposing team's bench. In 2017 reports surfaced that Sudbury is looking to build a new arena with sites being evaluated for feasibility. No timetable or estimated cost has been given on the project
