The Crown Coliseum[1] (originally the Cumberland County Crown Coliseum) is a multi-purpose arena in Fayetteville, North Carolina that broke ground in 1995[2] and opened in 1997.[3] It is currently home to the Fayetteville FireAntz ice hockey team and the Cape Fear Heroes indoor football team.

During the early stages of its construction, Fayetteville’s Crown Coliseum was mentioned as a possible temporary home for the NHL’s Carolina Hurricanes, but this was blocked by minor-league hockey executive Bill Coffey who had signed an exclusive lease agreement with the arena for the Fayetteville Force of the Central Hockey League.[4]
