(DODGE CITY, Kan.) — It's being called a new showplace of southwest Kansas; in just about a month a brand new arena opens in Dodge City.
The new United Wireless Arena is scheduled to open in February. The 137,000 square foot arena will seat around 4,200 people for sporting events, with more seats available for shows and concerts.
Arena executive director Ralph Nall says it will help bring new entertainment options to southwest Kansas.
"Now families in southwest Kansas don't have to travel, to go to the larger cities," said Nall. "They can stay and see that entertainment here in Dodge City that they would have to go to those big cities for."
The United Wireless Arena is located next to Dodge City's Boot Hill Casino.
