Blue Cross Arena History

Blue Cross Arena has been one of the most popular destinations in the Rochester, New York area ever since it first opened its doors in 1955. The venue was originally known as the Rochester War Memorial, and commonly referred to as the War Memorial, but was renamed Blue Cross Arena when it reopened in 1998 after undergoing major renovations. Over the years the arena has been used for countless big time basketball games and is still used for some of the St. Bonaventure Bonnies' biggest games. Blue Cross Arena is used for a wide variety of sports and performing arts events so there is always something exciting going on at the venue all year long. Be sure to get your tickets for Blue Cross Arena from StubHub early because tickets to the arena's biggest events sell out quickly.
