The EgeTrans Arena is a multifunctional hall in the Baden-Württemberg city ​​of Bietigheim-Bissingen . It replaces the Eisarena Ellental as the home ground of the Bietigheim Steelers . In addition to the MHPArena , the EgeTrans Arena serves as the home ground of SG BBM Bietigheim . The construction was necessary because the previous ice arena no longer met today's safety standards and was in great need of renovation.


Construction of the arena began on November 17, 2011. On December 21, 2012, the new arena was inaugurated with a derby in the 2nd ice hockey Bundesliga between the Bietigheim Steelers and the Heilbronner Falken . The ice rink was completely sold out and Bietigheim won 4: 3 after extra time. The ice rink also fulfills the 9000 point plan of the DEL . It's not just the Steelers who play their home games there. The professional teams of the SG BBM Bietigheim handball club also play in the EgeTrans Arena. To do this, the permanent ice surface must be covered with a playing surface.

The name sponsor of the multifunctional hall has been the Marbach forwarding company EgeTrans since 2012 . The agreement was initially valid for three years. In November 2015 the contract was extended for another three years.
