As part of the City for Champions (C4C) Initiative, two downtown multi-purpose sports venues (together named the Colorado Sports and Events Center) are being planned and designed to host professional, Olympic and amateur sporting events as well as entertainment and cultural events. The two venues are in close proximity to the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Museum. The Edward J. Robson Arena at Colorado College, home of CC Tiger hockey, is the indoor venue. Both will include technological features coveted by competitive athletes, further solidifying the City’s brand of Olympic City USA and providing unique venues to host the growing momentum of a strong and vibrant tourism industry.
The arena will be unique in size and scope, easy to manage and maintain, and optimized for high-level athletic competition due to its comprehensive sports-medicine facility, in-house TV production capability, flexible floor space, and experienced staff. It will encompass approximately 120,000 square feet for competition space, seating, locker and restrooms, concessions, storage, and administrative space. This 3,400-seat arena in the heart of CC's campus will include retail space, restaurants, and student support space, plus a parking garage. The complex will give Tiger hockey players and fans a true "home field" and tailgate-like experience. And, much like the stadium, it will lend itself to alternative uses beyond hockey.
Ground Breaking: Early 2020 Scheduled Opening: The project is expected to be completed in the summer of 2021 and open October 2021. Venue Details:
