Mariucci Arena
T: Olympic / International Rink

Twenty one years after the new Mariucci Arena first graced the campus of the University of Minnesota, fans and players alike still are amazed by the breathtaking beauty of a sold-out Mariucci and the atmosphere it provides. In 1993, the old Mariucci Arena, located in front of Williams Arena, took on a whole new face when it relocated just north of its old home. The new Mariucci Arena brings a brand new look to Golden Gopher hockey, not only from the outside, but inside as well. With the best sight lines possible from every seat, no Gopher fan is ever disappointed with the view of the fastest game in town. The Olympic-sized (200 feet by 100 feet) ice sheet lends itself to the free-wheeling style of play of Minnesota's "Pride on Ice." With the capability to have ice year-round, the arena brings a truly state-of-the-art facility to the University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus.

Mariucci Arena has been a top site for NCAA Regional action, hosting the West Regional in 2000, 2003, 2005 and 2009.. The arena has also hosted the Inaugural 2001 NCAA Women's Frozen four as well as the 2006 NCAA Women's Frozen Four.
