In Topic: New Will Rogers Arena

Average WNBA attendance is 7,716. AHL hockey (2nd tier to NHL) is 5,823. Brahmas averaged 2,441.  No idea what the Legends get but it will be under 4,500 due to arena capacity.


The new arena will have the same problems hosting minor league professional teams the old one had, a three weekend, two week, rodeo in late January and February, smack in the middle of the winter season. Fort Worth has always sided with the rodeo when it came to upgrading and repairing the arena, leaving most minor league team's management in anger. That's why all have left.
 

 

The Spurs never seem to have a problem with this every February and that's one of the top NBA organizations. 

I'm sure minor league teams could work out the same thing.

The Dallas WNBA team already plays at College Park in Arlington.

 

Yep. 

The WNBA ship sank for us when they announced it. 

I'd go for getting the Brahmas back and NBA G-League... and actually MARKET those teams like the Cats when were still here. Nothing wrong with minor league.

That arena is going to have SOME kind of sports tenants at some point.

Even the CC ufo had an Arena Football team once.

It appears the only group supporting this alliance from outside the City of Fort Worth is the University of Texas Arlington.

 

What a shock...

I find it odd. That so restaurants come and go. With such popularity of the area. 

Maybe location.  Maybe the area has too many restaurants and sports bars.  Maybe the restaurant was poorly managed.

 

 

It was there for 8 years.

For a restaurant or bar, that's a pretty good run...
