Deep in the heart of Texas lies American Airlines Center, one of the nation’s top arenas. Since opening its doors in 2001, American Airlines Center has been setting the precedent for sporting and live entertainment events. Housing both the NBA Dallas Mavericks and the NHL Dallas Stars, the American Airlines Center displays its unique versatility with its retractable seating transforming from a 20,000 seat basketball arena into an up-close action-heavy 18,532 seat hockey rink. On the forefront of technology, American Airlines Center features a 1080 HD Centerhung as well as two massive video boards at each upper end, and an audio system with surround sound capabilities. With 105 luxury suites, 78 theater boxes and awards in architectural design, customer service, and green technology, the American Airlines Center is nothing short of a world class facility.
