Australian Ice Hockey League Club Canberra Looking To Increase Capacity At Home Arena

Australian Ice Hockey League side Canberra Brave's "remarkable success" in the league has led to "talks of increasing the capacity and improving amenities at the Phillip Swimming and Ice Hockey Centre," according to Lee Gaskin of the CANBERRA TIMES. However, the ACT Government said that a "new rink at the Molonglo site as part of a proposed aquatic centre isn't feasible." The government added that it will work with Phillip Rink Manager John Raut to "discuss possible upgrades." The Brave play in front of "capacity crowds" of 1,000 people, including "having a full house at last Sunday's final home game of the season against the Melbourne Mustangs." Brave Chair Peter Chamberlain said that there were "plans to increase capacity by 300 to 400 for next season, but improving amenities and safety was just as important." ACT Sports Minister Shane Rattenbury attended the Brave's final home game of the season and said that the venue "needed to be upgraded to cope with the demand." Rattenbury: "There's no doubt the facilities [at Phillip] are aged ... it's pretty basic at the current rink" (CANBERRA TIMES, 8/16).
