Yost Ice Arena
Yost Ice Arena (formerly the Fielding H. Yost Fieldhouse) in Ann Arbor, Michigan is an indoor ice hockey arena located in Ann Arbor, Michigan. It is the home of the University of Michigan varsity ice hockey team which plays in the Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA). Built in 1923 as a field house, the facility is named in honor of Michigan's legendary football coach and athletic director, Fielding H. Yost. A multi-purpose indoor athletic venue, it was one of the first of its kind on a college campus. For many years, it housed the Michigan men's and women's basketball teams, until those teams relocated their sporting events to the larger Crisler Arena in 1967. In 1973, it was converted into an ice arena, and the Michigan hockey team has used it ever since. The University of Michigan's Senior and Collegiate synchronized skating and freestyle teams also practice at Yost. In addition, local high school teams, recreational leagues (AAAHA) and the university's intramural hockey league call it home. It has since undergone a number of renovations to modernize its facilities and improve amenities for spectators. Yost Ice Arena's current capacity is 6,637. Yost Ice Arena has hosted NCAA Ice Hockey Tournament games five times in its history, most recently in 2003.
