Arena Info

SNHU Arena Facts

The ground breaking for the SNHU Arena, formerly known as Verizon Wireless Arena, took place in April 2000, and took nearly one and a half years to complete the facility. On November 15, 2001, we celebrated the grand opening of the SNHU Arena. The Manchester Monarchs, of the ECHL, played their first home game on November 16, and Aerosmith performed the following night.

Seating capacity for the SNHU Arena varies, depending upon each individual event. For example, hockey games seat approximately 10,019, basketball seats 11,140 people, end stage concerts hold about 10,050, while center stage concerts seat about 11,770.
