HOW & WHY IT WAS BUILT:
LEGENDS & HEROES CAMPAIGN

Formed in 2011, the Legends & Heroes Campaign Steering Committee was comprised of community volunteers, Grand Forks Blue Line Club and Park District representatives, who worked together to build a new ice arena next to the Choice Health & Fitness. Through community philanthropy, we were able to raise $11 million to construct the state-of-the-art construct arena.

Aside from providing local, year-round ice for families within our community, ICON Sports Center was been a prime hosting location for large hockey tournaments and skating competitions, including the co-host location for the 2016 IIHF Men’s U18 World Championship Tournament, along with the Ralph Engelstad Arena.  With the ability to host many youth tournaments, the facility has made a great financial impact to the Grand Forks community, as well as assisted with adding to the quality of life of local hockey and figure staking families.
