Publication Date

President David R. Harris joined city, county and state officials at a groundbreaking ceremony for the Mohawk Harbor Event Center. The $50 million, 97,178-square foot multi-purpose event center features a 2,200-seat ice hockey rink with capacity expanding to 3,600 for other sporting events, trade shows, special events and conventions. The College has negotiated a long-term lease with the developer for the arena to host the school’s Division I men’s and women’s hockey programs.

Among the media outlets on hand for the event were WAMC, Northeast Public Radio, the Times Union, Daily Gazette, WRGB and WTEN.

The event center is scheduled to be completed in time for both Garnet Chargers teams to play in their new home for the 2025-26 season.
