The Resch Center is a 10,200 seat multi-purpose arena, in Ashwaubenon, Wisconsin, United States. Built in 2002, it is the home of the University of Wisconsin–Green Bay Phoenix men's basketball team, the Green Bay Gamblers ice hockey team, and the Green Bay Blizzard indoor football team.The arena was built next to the existing Brown County Veterans Memorial Arena and across the street from Lambeau Field. It was named for executive Dick Resch of a local office furniture company KI Industries, which holds the arena's naming rights.NCAA Regional Hockey TournamentThe Resch Center was the site of the 2006 NCAA men's hockey tournament's Midwest Regional, held on March 25, and 26. The Wisconsin Badgers of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA), the Cornell Big Red of the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC), Colorado College, also of the WCHA, and Bemidji State University of College Hockey America (CHA), all participated in the Midwest Regional. The regional final had Wisconsin defeating Cornell 1–0 in three overtimes. This game was the longest 1–0 game in NCAA Tournament history, the second longest game in NCAA tournament history, and the seventh-longest game in NCAA Division I history. The victory earned the Badgers their first trip to the Frozen Four since 1992.
Ray Nitschke Field is one of the two outdoor practice facilities of the Green Bay Packers (the other is Clarke Hinkle Field). These fields, together with the Don Hutson Center, comprise the team's training complex.The field is named for Ray Nitschke, who played for the Packers from 1958 to 1972 and whose number 66 was retired by the team. Nitschke is a member of both the Pro Football and Packers Hall of Fames.On June 18, 2003, the Brown County Board voted 23–0 to approve a new lease for Ray Nitschke Field which gave the Packers the use of the site through 2020. The lease began in 2004 and started at $125,000 with an increase of $5,000 in each succeeding year. The Packers had been leasing the field from the County since 1997 for $15,000 a year. This field had an artificial FieldTurf surface, installed in 2004 (Clarke Hinkle Field has a natural grass surface).The Packers have since signed a 15-year lease with Brown County to move the field closer to the Don Hutson Center, with their paying $200,000 to the county this year and increasing $6,500 each subsequent year. The new location is in a former parking lot for the Resch Center and as part of the deal the Packers had to build a 205-space parking lot at the former site of Nitschke Field.On August 1, 2009, the Packers unveiled major renovations to the practice facility, including bleacher seating for 1500 fans, a sound system for announcements and music as well as natural grass field with underground heating. The heating system will enable the team to host outdoor practices in the winter, something they have been unable to do in the past. The exterior facade uses the same brick style as Lambeau Field and the 170 × 75-yard field is considered a state-of-the-art practice field unlike anything else in the National Football League.
The Brown County Veterans Memorial 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 on November 11, 1958.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.EventsIt hosted the 1991 Mid-Continent Conference (now Summit League) 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, though it remains in use as a secondary sports venue due to any scheduling conflicts at the Resch Center.Brown County Arena played host to several WWF events in the 1980s and resuming again in the early 2000s, with house shows.Pro wrestlingIn the early 1990s the World Wrestling Federation would hold live events as well as WWF TV tapings in the arena. WCW would also go on to have many live events at the arena. In 1998 the WWF took a three year hiatus from the Brown County Arena. In January 2001 and in February 2002, the World Wrestling Federation returned with two house shows before leaving their older location for the brand new Resch Center.
