Venue Information

The J.S. Dorton Arena is a 7,610-seat multi-purpose arena in Raleigh, North Carolina, USA. It is currently the home of the Carolina Rollergirls (WFTDA), and the Carolina Bombers indoor football team and was most notably the home of the Raleigh IceCaps (ECHL) ice hockey team from 1991-1998. The American Basketball Association's Carolina Cougars also played some games there from 1969-74. It was opened in 1952.

Incorporating an unusual elliptical design by Matthew Nowicki, of the North Carolina State University Department of Architecture, the Arena was listed in the National Register of Historic Places on April 11, 1973. Originally named the "State Fair Arena", it was dedicated to Dr. J. S. Dorton, former North Carolina State Fair manager, in 1961.
