Reno Events Center is a 7,000-seat multi-purpose arena, located in downtown Reno, Nevada, that was constructed in 2005.
It is currently home to the
Reno Bighorns of the NBA Development League and was the home to the Reno Barons of the Western Indoor Football Association during their short lived 2011 season.
Along with being a basketball and indoor football venue, it has hosted concerts by a wide range of artists.
In 2012 and 2013, the Events Center hosted the
NBA D-League Showcase, featuring all of the NBA Development League's teams over a four-day period in early January.
It has also hosted tour stops on the
PBR's Built Ford Tough Series.
Starting in 2016, the arena will host the
Big Sky men's and women's basketball tournament.
The facility is believed to be a leading candidate for an
American Hockey League that will be the affiliate of the Las Vegas NHL team that is scheduled to start play with the 2017-18 season. The NHL has announced that it will split an affiliation with another NHL team on an AHL team for the 2017-148 season.
