Northern Lights Arena is the only facility in Northeast Michigan to provides two first class, official NHL sized ice rinks within one building.  Our state of the art primary rink provides seating for 1,200, an in-rink concession stand, six large, full service private locker rooms and an 1/8 mile rubberized running track. Northern Lights Arena is much more than just an ice arena.  The Alpena Convention & Visitors Bureau estimates that an eight-team hockey tournament brings over $50,000 into the community.  We strive to bring out-of-town dollars into the Alpena and hope to have a full slate of tournaments this hockey season. Representatives from the Northern Lights Arena Community board will be seeking support for the arena in the form of advertising & sponsorships opportunities.  Please consider supporting your community by supporting NLA. With the exception of a few public grants such as the Youth & Recreation Fund, NLA receives no taxpayer money to support operations.
