The arena was designed by a Swedish company Skanska that previously worked on Atlant's Mytishchi Arena. Construction began in spring 2007 and was originally expected to finish by the 2008-09 season. But due to subsequent construction problems the official opening was rescheduled for January 2009.

On 15 February 2013, the arena was damaged by the blast wave from the explosion of the Chelyabinsk meteor.
