Farewell, Old Ralph

The old Ralph Engelstad Arena at the University of North Dakota campus in Grand Forks is scheduled to be torn down to make way for an indoor practice facility for the school’s sports teams.

The arena was home to the UND Fighting Sioux hockey team from 1972 to 2001 until the new $104 million Ralph Engelstad Arena opened its doors. Demolition is expected to be finished by late summer.
