Nets are used around the rink to stop ice pucks with no plexi-glass installed. The ice rink has a spectator capacity of around one thousand with both seating and standing room utilised. The players enter and exit the ice rink in amongst the crowd giving the fans a unique opportunity to get close to their sporting idols. There is a bar located on a mezzanine level to the near end of the rink closest to the entry and exit doors. CBR Brave train and play home matches in the AIHL at the iconic Phillip Ice Skating Centre that is known as the Brave Cave on match-days.
Brave co-director, Warren Apps, responded to the news on the ACT Grandstand radio program on 666 ABC Canberra by further expressing the need for new investment due to the demand on the current facility now exceeding its capacity. Mr Rattenbury's reasons for his decision came from a feasibility study into the proposal ruling out the investment into a second ice rink for a city due to the population size of Canberra at this time. 16 August 2014, ACT Sports Minister, Shane Rattenbury, formally rejected a proposal to build a brand new ice rink attached to the new swimming complex planned for the Molonglo Valley in Canberra's south. Instead the minister proposed further review of what can be done to upgrade the current privately owned Phillip Ice Centre facility.
CBR Brave finished third in the 2017 AIHL regular season behind Melbourne Ice and Perth Thunder, qualifying for the Goodall Cup finals series. CBR Brave beat Perth Thunder 6-2 in the semi-finals but lost the Goodall Cup Final to Melbourne Ice 1-4.

This prompted more banter between the two clubs and fans on social media including the creation of a fan made poster that was put up at the Brave Cave when Newcastle visited Canberra that depicted a fake classifieds advert for import players to apply for the CBR Brave with the condition that they must have previously played for the Newcastle North Stars.
30 January 2015, Brave announce the appointment of Brad Hunt as the new head coach for the 2015 AIHL season.

Firstly, a signed home venue agreement, secondly, ability to field a competitive team for the upcoming season and lastly, to prove the team would be financially viable. The AIHL laid down three stipulations and requirements for the consortium to meet before granting the team entry.
