Maturi Pavilion has established itself as one of the premier multi-purpose facilities in the nation. The former home of Golden Gopher men's hockey, the facility was remodeled and reopened in 1993. It currently serves as the home of the Golden Gopher men's and women's gymnastics team, the volleyball team and the wrestling team.
Originally named the Sports Pavilion, the facility was renamed Maturi Pavilion in August 2017 in honor of former Golden Gopher Athletics Director Joel Maturi.
The Pavilion has been the home of Golden Gopher volleyball since in 1994 with it quickly becoming one of the top collegiate volleyball venues in the country. Last season, the Gophers ranked fourth nationally in home match attendance among NCAA Division I schools and routinely ranks in the top five from season to season.
Maturi Pavilion also provides a first-class home for Golden Gopher men's and women's gymnastics. The facility offers superior sitelines and because of that, has been the host site of several big events, including several Big Ten Championships.
Not to be outdone, Maturi Pavilion provides a haven for one of the top wrestling programs in the nation. While the Golden Gophers also host matches in adjacent Williams Arena, Minnesota drew one of the largest crowds in school history in the inaugural year of Maturi Pavilion. In 1993-94, 5,205 fans watched Minnesota upset top-ranked Oklahoma State.
