From sporting events to statewide competitions, 3M Arena at Mariucci hosts educational, recreational, and community competitions and activities that reinforce 3M’s drive to improve the quality of life for Minnesotans in the Twin Cities and beyond. The arena makes more visible what the University of Minnesota has always known: 3M is a truly remarkable campus citizen.

“3M Arena at Mariucci is an iconic campus landmark and is one of the most recognizable and well-known multi-purpose facilities in Minnesota. Each year, more than 400,000 people pass through its doors, and the arena is truly a venue that serves the local community and entire state. 3M Arena at Mariucci is home to passionate Gopher hockey fans, but it also hosts high school athletic and robotic competitions, career fairs and dozens of graduations for the University, local high schools, and even the Minnesota State Patrol. Thank you, 3M, for being an outstanding corporate citizen.”

— Mark Coyle, director of athletics at the University of Minnesota
