Mennen Arena

The William G. Mennen Sports Arena, commonly called the Mennen Sports Arena or the Mennen Arena, is a 2,500-seat multi-purpose arena in Morris Township, New Jersey. It hosts various local concerts and sporting events for the area. Mennen hosted one game for the New Jersey XTreme of the National Indoor Football League in 2005, and was formerly the home of the New Jersey Revolution of the American Indoor Football Association. Mennen also is the home of the County College of Morris hockey team as well as all of the public high school hockey teams in Morris County, New Jersey. Mennen is also one of the host arenas for the New Jersey Colonials, the main training center for the Skating Club of Morris, and the Precisely Right synchronized skating team [1].

On June 18, 2005, CM Punk won the Ring of Honor World Heavyweight Championship at the arena from Austin Aries.

The Mennen Arena [2] built in 1973 on land donated by the Mennen Company, now part of Colgate-Palmolive. It was opened to the public on January 12, 1975. At that time, the facility consisted of one indoor multi-purpose arena with articifical ice in place for most of the year.

A second ice surface was added in an expansion building in 1986. Due to continued growth in demand for ice time, a third surface was added in 2002, as well as additional space for parties and expanded restroom facilities.

During the summer months the ice surface in the main rink is removed. While the ice is out the arena hosts a wide variety of events ranging from indoor football to the Shrine Circus. Mennen has also hosted National Night Out as well as a Tiger Schulman's Mixed Martial arts event.

Mennen Arena is a facility of The Morris County Park Commission[3].

The field located outside of the arena is home to the Morris Lions Rugby Football Club.

On January 28th-31st, 2009, Mennen Arena hosted the Eastern Synchronized Sectional Championships, where over 2,500 skaters competed.[4]
