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 on a site formerly home to the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame from 1976 until 2001. It was named for executive Dick Resch of a local office furniture company KI Industries, which holds the arena's naming rights.
The 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.
The NCAA Division I Hockey Midwest Regional returned to the Resch Center March 26-27, 2011, hosted by Michigan Technological University.
The Resch Center is the home of the Green Bay Blizzard of the Indoor Football League and the former home of the Green Bay Chill of the Legends Football League (women's indoor tackle league). The field used for the team is sponsored by U.S. Cellular.
The Time Warner Cable Theatre (formerly Theatre at the Resch Center until 2009) is a more intimate configuration of the Resch Center specifically designed for shows with capacities from 3,000 to 5,500. An elaborate floor-to-ceiling, curtain system allows the venue to be transformed into an intimate setting of the Resch Center that can be used for theater style concerts, Broadway shows, and other events.
