In Game

The state-of-the-art Stroh Center is the newest venue in the MAC and an excellent place to take in a college hoops game. The facility offers an intimate atmosphere that is reminiscent of the Falcons basketball team’s previous facility Anderson Arena. No matter where you’re sitting, you’ll feel like you’re right on top of the action when attending a game at the Stroh Center.

In addition to providing a cozy atmosphere, the Stroh Center also does an outstanding job of showing off the history of the Falcons basketball program and the athletics department. Above the court, you’ll see a variety of banners honoring the best teams and athletes in Falcons history, and if that’s not enough Falcons history for you, the Stroh Center is also home to the Bowling Green Hall of Fame.

Those of you looking to grab a bite to eat or something to drink after the game will want to check out downtown Bowling Green. Downtown is home to several Bowling Green student favorites including Mr. Spots, Reverend’s, and Pollyeyes. There’s a lot to check out downtown making it the perfect place to stop for some post game entertainment.

Fight Songs

  1. Forward Falcons

    The official fight song for Bowling Green.

  2. Ay Ziggy Zoomba

    Ay Ziggy Zoomba is Bowling Green’s unofficial fight song. Gilbert Fox, an Air Force bombardier in World War II, brought a loose translation of a Zulu war chant back with him, and since its introduction in 1946 to a campus spirit assembly, it has kept its place in BGSU history.
