The Ector County Coliseum is a 5,131 seat multi-purpose arena in Odessa, Texas.

TenantsEdit

It is home to the Odessa Jackalopes (North American Hockey League) the Sand Hills Rodeo, and the biennial Permian Basin International Oil Show.

Each January the arena hosts a major rodeo, and the animals are kept in a large hall at one end of the arena. This is the same area that, before hockey games, group picnics are served to as many as 500 people.

HistoryEdit

The Coliseum was built in 1954 and was previously the home of the original Odessa Jackalopes team. The Coliseum was the oldest arena still being used for CHL games until the Fort Wayne Komets and their facility, the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum, entered the league in 2010. It was home to the West Texas Roughnecks (Indoor Football League) from 2004 until the team folded in 2012.
