United Spirit Arena History

It's not exactly a secret that college basketball is one of the most popular sports in the land, it won't take you very long to be reminded of exactly why that is when the United Spirit Arena is really rocking during the Red Raiders' regular season. Come out and see the Raiders and the Lady Raiders hit the hardwood and you'll see plenty of smooth three-pointers, spectacular blocked shots and nail-biting moments that you're sure to be talking about a long time after it's all over. The stands are always absolutely filled to the brim with passion and energy, which is a tradition that has been holding strong ever since United Spirit Arena opened back in 1999.

But you also don't want to make the mistake of thinking that this arena is only about the best of the best in college hoops, as it also routinely brings other world-class entertainers to the stage for one exciting show or another. Icons like Paul McCartney, Britney Spears and Taylor Swift are just a few of the superstars that have ended up on the calendar at the United Spirit Arena, making this the type of place that tends to have a little something for everybody.

United Spirit Arena Events

Home to the Texas Tech Red Raiders basketball, Texas Tech Lady Raiders basketball and Texas Tech Red Raiders women's volleyball teams, the United Spirit Arena opened in 1999 and quickly established itself as one of the premier places in Lubbock, Texas for a major spectator sport. When country legend George Strait wanted to kick-off his final live tour in style, he came to Lubbock, Texas and brought the house down at the United Spirit Arena. Over the years, you might have been able to catch other shows like Cirque du Soleil, WWE events and many more, giving you plenty of incentive to keep your eye on the schedule long after the Red Raiders' season wraps.
