The Veterans Memorial Coliseum is a 3,500-seat multi-purpose arena, in Marion, Ohio. It was built in 1950.

It is home to the Marion Blue Racers indoor football team of the Xtreme Indoor Football League.

The arena was formerly home to the Marion Barons, a minor league professional ice hockey team during the 1953-54 International Hockey League season. The Toledo Mercurys played part of the 1955-56 season at the arena, operating as the "Toledo-Marion Mercurys." The most recent former tenant was the Marion Mayhem, which folded in 2010, after 5 years of participating in the CIFL.
