The arena was opened on October 15, 2005, in Mytishchi, a satellite town close to Moscow, to the north-east of the Moscow Automobile Ring Road.

This is a major sports and entertainment complex, and one of the most modern in Moscow and the Moscow Region. It has 26 VIP boxes, six buffets and six banquet halls.

Prior to 2015, the matches of the Khimik (Voskresensk) and Atlant (Mytishchi) hockey teams were played here, the latter playing in the Continental Hockey League. In the 2010/2011 season it reached the final of the Gagarin Cup, where it lost to Salavat Yulayev.

Today it is the home arena of the Mytishchi Atlases team, which plays in the Youth Hockey League.

In 2007, the Arena Mytishchi participated in the Hockey World Championship and the Russian Figure-skating Championship.

International stars have performed at the arena, such as Demis Roussos, Bad Boys Blue, Boney M and others.

The venue hosts mass ice skating sessions, including the Ice Party, which is held at night.
