Welsh Ryan Arena Tickets

After an extensive renovation in 1982, it was renamed Welsh Ryan in honor of the project’s principal donor, insurance magnate Patrick G. Ryan, and his wife’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Welsh. A 2018 renovation replaced the bleachers with chairback seats, widened concourses, luxury suites and balconies behind the bleachers. The Welsh Ryan Arena is the smallest arena in the Big 10 Conference.
