Mariucci Arena

About Mariucci Arena:

The home of the University of Minnesota Golden Gophers Men’s Hockey Team, Mariucci Arena breathes of the great tradition of Minnesota hockey. Mariucci ArenaInside the arena pictures of past great Golden Gopher teams are plastered on the walls, trophy cases are filled with awards of teams past and maroon and gold banners proudly display the conquests of those teams.

Mariucci Arena is named for the legendary Hall of Famer, John Mariucci. Mariucci was a native of Eveleth, Minnesota and a stand-out University of Minnesota hockey player. For over 40 years he helped Minnesota grow into a strong “State of Hockey.” His many accomplishments include helping his squad win the NCAA national championship in 1940, playing five NHL seasons with the Chicago Black Hawks, coaching the University of Minnesota hockey team and advocating the development of local home grown Minnesota talent. He coached the US Olympic team to silver in 1956 and in 1967 he returned to the NHL with the Minnesota North Stars as the assistant to general manager, a position he held until his death in 1987. Mariucci arena is appropriately named in his honor.

Mariucci ArenaIn 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 brought a brand new look to Golden Gopher hockey. The arena was made with 256,580 bricks; 2,000 of which came from Memorial Stadium. Row 12 in the arena is 18 feet above the ice; in the old arena fans in the same row were only eight feet above ice level. 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.

The crowd capacity for Mariucci increased from 9,305 its first three seasons to 9,700 prior to the 1996-97 season. The Olympic size ice sheet makes for a fast-pace, wide open style of hockey that the Golden Gophers are known for. The building does not have even one obstructed view seat, which is another reason that Golden Gopher hockey is one of the hottest tickets in town. With the best possible sight lines from every seat, no Golden Gopher fan is ever disappointed with the view of the fastest game in town.

Last season, the Golden Gophers had 242,781 fans enter Mariucci Arena, the third consecutive year Minnesota surpassed the 200,000 mark. With a list capacity of 9,700, Minnesota averages 9,711 people per home game. The attendance figure is second in the WCHA behind Wisconsin, who averages 11,870 fans in the 14,385-seat Kohl Center. The record for the largest crowd in Mariucci arena was set on Feb. 15, 1997, when 9,886 people watched Minnesota defeat Minnesota-Duluth, 7-1. Minnesota is consistently ranked in the top five in attendance in the country.

Nothing can beat the atmosphere that Mariucci can produce on game night. From the roar of the crowd when the Golden Gophers take the ice, to the roar of the band as they blare out the Minnesota Rouser, Mariucci Arena boasts deep hockey appreciation and tradition. Fans and players alike still are amazed by the breathtaking beauty of a sold-out Mariucci arena and the atmosphere it provides. On game nights, tradition simply boils over and turns the arena into one of the finest venues to experience a college hockey game in the country. It is truly an experience to remember.
