Chesapeake Energy Arena

Chesapeake Energy Arena History

If you're looking for some top-tier live entertainment, you're definitely in the right spot, as the Chesapeake Energy Arena tends to always be setting up for one amazing game/show or another. As the home court for the OKC Thunder of the NBA, you can come out and see some of the very best athletes in the world as they compete on the hardwood, providing plenty of opportunities to see basketball played at the highest possible level. As soon as you're there soaking up the vibes of a great game loaded with passion and energy, you'll definitely see loud and clear why the Chesapeake Energy Arena has become a staple of the local entertainment scene.

The arena opened in 2002 but it was not until 2005 that a team from one of the major sports called the arena home, when the New Orleans Hornets were temporarily relocated to Oklahoma City after Hurricane Katrina. The OKC crowd was so great that the NBA allowed the Seattle Sonics to relocate and become the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2008. The Chesapeake Arena holds over 18,000 guests for basketball and hockey and seating increases to nearly 20,000 for concerts, as well as 14,000 for wrestling events and 17,000 for arena football. No matter the type of event you're looking for, though, Chesapeake Energy Arena is likely to have something for you.


Chesapeake Energy Arena Events

Although now the arena is most used as an NBA arena for the Oklahoma City Thunder when it comes to sports, it is definitely a multi-purpose venue. While the teams were still functioning, Chesapeake Arena served as the home of the Oklahoma City Blazers hockey team which played in the CHL as well as the arena football team the Oklahoma City Yard Dawgz. It has also hosted the Big 12 college basketball tournament, the NBA Finals, UFC events, WWE contests, and much more. Concerts are also a big part of the annual schedule at Chesapeake Arena and when they are bringing in superstar acts like Bruce Springsteen, Shania Twain, Elton John, Madonna, John Fogerty, R.E.M., and many others, Chesapeake turns into an unbelievable concert venue that routinely draws in people by the tens of thousands.


Trivia

Did you know that Cheech & Chong actually co-hosted a WWE event at Chesapeake Energy Arena?

The famed duo came to town in 2006 as guest hosts for WWE event Raw, marking one of the most unique events ever to go down at Chesapeake.


Fan Experience

When two amazing teams take to the court for a highly anticipated game, there are few sporting events that can hold a candle to the atmosphere that you'll experience in the crowd, as NBA games are routinely packed with passion and energy you can't find anywhere but the stands. But the good thing about Chesapeake is that it also has a lot more going on than just hosting the best players in the NBA, as you can find riveting concerts, wrestling shows and a whole lot more, providing plenty of opportunities to head out and see that live entertainment is still king around Oklahoma City.
