Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - College hockey fans in the area will get a front row seat to watch the NCAA Tournament in 2015, as Scheels Arena will host a regional.
The NCAA made the announcement earlier today, UND will host the event.
Scheels Arena has hosted big time hockey events, notably the 2009 U-18 Hockey Tournament, but a chance to pack the place with local hockey fans is very appealing to the arena staff...
Jon Kram/Arena General Manager: “It's an example of what the vision was five years ago for this building now that we are in our sixth year, starting to see some of the stuff come together, it's really exciting we are just thrilled to have it all come together today. It talks about what can we do for Fargo and what can we do for North Dakota and to me that's what we are looking at. Brining the NCAA, the Regional Tournament to our towns, our communities, our state is huge.”
This will not be the only big hockey event at the arena next year; the North Dakota state hockey tournament will be in Fargo.
Meanwhile for the players and administration at UND, they know how big a deal this is.
