The fourth time's a charm, ok I've never heard of that but the NCAA Frozen Four Tournament is coming back.

WDIO shared that the Bulldogs have hosted this even 3 other times. On the DECC side in 2003 and in 2008, in which they won national championships, and in 2012, AMSOIL Arena held the event. The UMD Bulldogs did not win a championship that year.


MSN Sports said the Minneapolis game will be played at the University of Minnesota’s Ridder Arena. This will be the 7th time for Minneapolis. Minneapolis and the Minnesota Gophers have hosted the most of any city.

MSN Sports says the next Frozen Four is scheduled to be played in Erie, PA in March 20-21. With the season starting late, that may be changed, unless they stick with a shorter season or shorten the playoffs.

With other sports added KAAL TV is reporting Minnesota will hold an NCAA event every year 2023-2026.

  • The 2023 NCAA Men's Swimming and Diving Championships will be held at Jean K. Freeman Aquatic Center at the University of Minnesota.
  • The 2023 NCAA Women's Ice Hockey Frozen Four will be held in Duluth at Amsoil Arena.
  • The 2024 NCAA Men's Ice Hockey Frozen Four will be held at Xcel Energy Center.
  • The 2025 NCAA Women's Ice Hockey Frozen Four will be held at Ridder Arena.

This will definitely help the area as the event brings a lot of money to the area.
