Ford Center

The Ford Center is a multipurpose event center located at 100 W Reno Ave in downtown Oklahoma City. The Ford Center is the host of indoor sporting and concert events as well as the home of the NBA's Oklahoma City Thunder, the Central Hockey League's Oklahoma City Blazers and the arena football Oklahoma City Yard Dawgz. The event center also hosts major concerts, family and social events, conventions, ice shows, and sporting events from local universities and high schools.



About the Ford Center

Designed by the architectural firm of The Benham Companies, the Ford Center in Oklahoma City shares a design likeness with its brother stadium Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan. The Ford Center is a 586,000 square foot space. The Ford Center seating chart has a capacity of 19,675 on four seating levels with 3,380 club seats, seven party suites and 49 private box suites making it the largest indoor arena in the state of Oklahoma. The Ford Center was started in 1999 and opened on June 8, 2002 and has already received improvements to keep it as up to date and state of the art as possible.



Ford Center and Hurricane Katrina

Many critics of the Ford Center said that it was too small to host large scale professional sporting events because the arena was only built to the minimum standards for the NBA and the NHL. However, after the Hurricane Katrina tragedy, the Ford Center and Oklahoma City landed a deal to have the New Orleans Hornets for the 2005-2006 season and the 2006-2007 season. Hosting the New Orleans gave the Ford Center the edge it needed to be considered a major arena in professional sports and citizens of Oklahoma City are confident that the last NBA game has not been played at the Ford Center.
