Brown County Veterans Memorial ArenaEdit profile
The Brown County Veterans Memorial Arena (more commonly known as the Brown County Arena) is a 5,248-seat multi-purpose arena, in Ashwaubenon, Wisconsin, situated on the corner of Lombardi Avenue and Oneida Street, across from Lambeau Field. The arena opened in 1957. It was the city and county's main indoor venue, until the Resch Center opened in 2002. It also was the home arena for the University of Wisconsin”“Green Bay basketball teams. It hosted the 1991 Mid-Continent Conference men’s basketball tournament and the Midwestern Collegiate Conference (now Horizon League) men's basketball tournament in 1998. The Arena continues to play host to concerts, ice shows, local sporting shows, high school graduations and other events, but has largely been phased out as a sports arena, because of its age and lack of seating. Most area sports teams that once used the arena now play home games in the newer Resch Center, which is right next door. Brown County Arena played host to several WWF events in the 1980's and resuming again in the early 2000's, with house shows.
