It has been the home of two short-lived minor league hockey teams: the Jamestown Titans of the North Eastern Hockey League in 2003-04 and the Jamestown Vikings of the Mid-Atlantic Hockey League in 2007–08. It served as the home of the junior hockey Jamestown Jets from 2008 to 2011, also hosting the 2009 UJHL All Star Game, and occasionally hosts training camp for the Erie Otters. From 2011 to 2013, the arena was the home of the Jamestown Ironmen, a North American Hockey League organization; from 2014 to 2018, the Southern Tier Xpress of the NA3HL resided in the arena. Today, it is home to the Jamestown Rebels, another NAHL team. The capacity of the "Arena A" for hockey is 1,900 people; arena management explored expanding that capacity to 3,000 seats to lure a professional franchise, but this proposal was never accepted. An expansion of the facility that took place between 2018 and 2021 did not add any additional seating capacity.
The Arena has recently played host to a number of major concerts including: Kenny Rogers Christmas & Hits Tour, Clint Black, Michael W. Smith, YES & ASIA, Aaron Tippin, Aids in Africa World Village Tour, World Famous Lipizanner Stallions 40th Anniversary, Golden Gloves Boxing, Buffalo Sabres Alumni.
The arena is one of several venues that was utilized for Western New York's hosting of the 2011 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships. The arena hosted exhibition games before the tournament proper began.
Naming rights to the arena have been held by Northwest Bank since the arena's inception. Until 2016, the arena was known as Jamestown Savings Bank Arena, as the five Jamestown branches of the bank had operated as "Jamestown Savings Bank" since 1998.
Northwest Arena reviews
If you are looking for a place to get some great local hockey and be super comfortable, head to the rink. The ice skaters are top notch as well and this is a family friendly building. more »
While my family and I were stuck with nothing to do one night on a trip to New York, mom found out info about the home team and we went to the arena, where we were impressed with the surroundings... more »
I went to the Arena a few times for different events always clean and we'll staffed to assist with any concerns. Their is a pub inside for drinks during events , the food service was quick and efficient to keep the flow of people moving. I look forward to returning in the near future more great events
Very nice arena. I have ice skated, attended hockey games, a wedding show, John Mulaney in concert and even had my high school graduation here. Very well maintained. Good prices for everything.
