Williams Arena is located in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and serves as the home court for the University of Minnesota men's basketball team. The venue is named after Henry Williams, a football coach at the school for many years in the early 1900's.
Williams Arena opened its doors to the public in 1928. As you can imagine, this makes the venue one of the oldest in all of Division I college basketball. But despite its old age, Williams Arena is not as outdated as many think. In fact, it has been updated over the years to keep up with the times.
The seating capacity at Williams Arena is 14,625. This is far from being the biggest venue in the Big Ten Conference, but with that being said, it still makes for a top notch college basketball environment.
Williams Arena has been around for many years, and it is the hopes of fans, players and the school that it lasts forever.
