Plans for new Hermantown Arena announced

The Hermantown Arena is getting a new look! Community leaders gathered to celebrate the partnership between the City of Hermantown and NorthStar Ford at the varsity boy’s hockey game Tuesday evening. Together, the partners will build and rename the arena “NorthStar Ford Arena.” The building will feature upgrades like an additional sheet of ice and greater access to the site as a whole.

This project is part of the “Community Recreation Initiative.” The initiative also includes new updates for Fichtner Park and the completion of the city-wide trail system. The “Community Recreation Initiative” was voted on and approved during the November 2022 election.

The City of Hermantown is working to gain more financial support from the Minnesota state legislature while the Hermantown Amateur Hockey Association continues their fundraising efforts. The construction of the new arena is set to begin in 2024.
