Ralph Engelstad Arena was a 6,000-seat multi-purpose arena in Grand Forks, North Dakota. It was home to the University of North Dakota Fighting Sioux hockey team. It also hosted community events and the 1983 Frozen Four tournament. It closed in 2001 before the new $100 million Ralph Engelstad Arena opened several blocks away from the older structure.

There has been discussion of demolishing the arena. The University athletic department has shown some interest in using the land to build a new indoor running track. The Energy and Environmental Research Center has also shown interest in the property for either new building construction or new parking lots.
