Built in 1968, the Capital Indoor Stadium is the first artificial indoor ice rink in China. The stadium hosted volleyball during the 2008 Beijing Olympics and will be the venue for short track speedskating as well as figure skating at the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics.

As part of Beijing 2022's promise to host a sustainable and green Games, the arena has changed its ice-making technology to an eco-friendly system that uses carbon dioxide as a clean refrigerant, instead of the environmentally harmful substance Freon. The new system also shortens the time it takes to make ice and transition between speedskating and figure skating.
