Over a million people have walked through the doors since Allen Event Center opened in 2009. And they have some special things in store at select games and special events.

Much has changed since Reba McEntire opened the arena with a stunning live performance on Nov. 6, 2009. Since then, several great acts have entertained audiences such as Daryl Hall & John Oates, The Doobie Brothers and Boston, and Dennis Miller, Dana Carvey and Kevin Nealon.

Since opening the arena with the popular Allen Americans, two more professional sports franchises, the Texas Revolution and Dallas Sidekicks now call the arena home. Organizations such as the National Collegiate Wrestling Association and Lone Star Conference (basketball) have brought collegiate championship sporting events to Allen Event Center as well, proving the versatility of the venue.
