The Pirates play their home games at Minges Coliseum, which opened in 1967 and seats 8000 Pirates fans. These fans are very boisterous, especially the students, who love to taunt the opposition. It is said the ECU is the number one party school in the nation and that all others are just pretenders. The Pirates fans also take their sports seriously too.
With these two, a great college basketball atmosphere is almost assured no matter the opponent. You can enjoy many great bars and restaurants near campus such as the Pirate’s Den and then at the Minges Arena watch the game from a great seat. You can enjoy great concession items such as nachos, hot dogs, pizza, pretzels and candy while watching the action on the court.
The Pirates are part of the American Athletic Conference which means teams such as Memphis, Cincinnati, Temple, UCF, USF, Tulsa and SMU will be making visits this season. With a great home schedule like this, you will not want to miss out on ECU basketball at Minges Arena.
