Hutchinson Sports Arena Information



The Hutchinson Sports Arena completed a $29-million renovation Spring 2017.  As a direct result of the support of the renovation from the community of Hutchinson, in February 2016 the NJCAA and American Legion Lysle Rishel Post #68 signed a 25 year contract that will keep the NJCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship in Hutchinson at the Sports Arena.  Shortly after the contract signing, the NJCAA awarded the Division I Volleyball Championship to the Hutchinson CVB for three years, beginning in November 2017, also to be played at the Sports Arena.


The renovations include:
  • A new main entrance and lobby on the south side, featuring an updated concourse.
  • New concession and ticketing areas.
  • A new north addition that boasts three auxiliary gyms.
  • Four new visitor locker rooms, two new officials’ locker rooms and new public restroom facilities.
  • Various multi-purpose rooms to serve as hospitality and meeting spaces.
  • An updated press box and media area.
