More Information

The Allen County War Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne, Indiana is now more 1,000,000 square feet under roof and has welcomed at least one million visitors annually for 27 consecutive years. It is one of a few facilities in the United States that can feature two arenas, connected by a shared lobby. The Coliseum Arena has a seating capacity of nearly 13,000 with newly renovated deluxe suites and club seats, while the multi-purpose 108,000 Expo Center has a potential seating capacity of 8,000.

Located in Northeast Indiana, Fort Wayne is the state’s second largest city and the Memorial Coliseum is the state’s second-largest public assembly facility. Easily accessible from major Midwest markets, such as Indianapolis, Chicago, Detroit, Columbus and Cincinnati, the market offers affordable local media and easy, convenient routing for touring productions and events.

The Coliseum Arena is home to the Komets (ECHL) and the Mad Ants (NBA G-League) and annually hosts major concerts and family show events. A new 4-sided center-hung high definition video scoreboard and new LED ribbon boards are being installed in the summer of 2018. The arena features a custom curtaining system to reduce capacity when needed. Updated concourses and restrooms provide a modern feel. New and expanded concession areas offer a great variety of food and beverage options to guests.

The Coliseum Expo Center is 152,000 sq. ft. of multi-purpose space with two portable walls and portable telescopic seating units. The main Expo Center room can be used in its entirety of 180,000 sq. ft.  or in smaller increments. Ample loading docks and drive-through bays facilitate easy load-in and load-out for sports, concerts, trade and consumer shows.
