Oklahoma City, OK (PressExposure) October 13, 2009 -- The sporting events are what the 586,000-square foot center is mostly known for, though. When clashing sporting events are hosted by Oklahoma City, the nearby Cox Convention Center that can seat close to 15,000 individuals shares the burden with the Ford Center.
The Ford Center is home to the Oklahoma City Thunder NBA team, the Oklahoma City Blazers Central Hockey League (CHL) team, and the Arena football2 leagueâs (af2) Oklahoma City Yard Dawgz. Architecturally similar to Detroitâs Ford Field stadium, the Ford Center was a MAPS initiative to improve entertainment options in Oklahoma City. Begun in 1999, the stadium was completed in June of 2002. Itâs a great idea to check out Oklahoma City when a great event in being held at the Ford Center.
