If you are a hockey fan and do not visit this place when you visit Grand Forks, you are missing out! I have never been on the tour, but as a current student at UND I have gone to many, many hockey games here. Hockey night is sacred to the student body. The arena lights up in full glory, students...

Great state of the art facility for hockey and basketball. Comfortable leather seating with individual cup holders. Lots of amenities. Acoustics for concerts not ideal but you can't beat the atmosphere. Good parking and always shuttles available.

Grand Forks is a Hockey Town and The Fighting Sioux are one of the best teams in the Nation. Plan a night or two and watch the finest hockey. Excitement throughout the evening.

If you like hockey, you have to go see the Fighting Sioux Play here. Just amazing. Period... Come hungry and enjoy dinner at the arena. Make sure to play the 50/50 raffle as the prize pool gets up there. No seat is a bad seat. Make sure to be nice... No gophers on the ice...

They started a tour at 1pm. Otherwise closed to the public. Why? There isn't too much to say since you couldn't see it.

My husband and I saw Eric Church here and were NOT disappointed. Of course the show was spectacular, but this venue is an awesome place to see a concert. The building is beautiful and clean, and the concessions and bathrooms are very conveniently located. We were in the 300 section and still had an amazing view because it's not a... More
