The John F. Kennedy Civic Arena (also known as Kennedy Arena) is an indoor ice skating and ice hockey arena located in Rome, New York. The arena was home to the Copper City Chiefs of the North East Hockey League during the league's failed 2007-2008 season. The arena was going to be the home to the Eastern Professional Hockey League franchise but the team folded before the season. However, starting in 2010, it will be home to the Rome Frenzy of the Federal Hockey League.
