Sited on the Will Roger’s Memorial Center (WRMC) campus in Fort Worth’s Cultural District, the new Fort Worth Multi-Purpose Arena will host the annual Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo, providing additional seating and premium amenities compared to the existing facility. The 560,000 SF arena will be complimented by a 156,000 SF livestock support building that adjoins at the Event Level. A 215,000 SF landscaped Plaza sits above the Event Level and livestock facilities, with excellent views of the WRMC campus and downtown Fort Worth.
When not in use for livestock events, the bowl has been designed to accommodate hockey, family shows, NCAA regulation basketball tournaments, and concerts. Its flexible, three-level seating bowl provides 9,000 seats for rodeo, with capacity increasing up to 14,000 seats for center stage concerts. Other Arena amenities include two premium entertainment clubs located near the north and south entrances, two party suites, 36 suites, 32 loge boxes, arena rigging to accommodate modern entrainment shows, 75 concession points of sale and the latest in fan entertainment and communication technology.
In addition to the Arena, DMSAS has designed a new, 2200-car parking garage, being constructed along with a 85,000 square foot underground, multi-purpose event and equine warm up support building, all organized on a three-acre outdoor green space plaza.
