Reliant Arena Tickets Information
Reliant Arena consists of multiple rooms and divisions on two separate floors.
The main partition on the first floor is the "Arena Proper", a 24,000 gross square foot arena that seats up to 8,500 people. While dwarfed by the stadiums within the complex (the Reliant Astrodome seats 60,000 and Reliant Stadium seats 70,000) as well as other arenas in the city (the Toyota Center seats 20,000, Robertson Stadium seats 30,000, and Minute Maid Park seats 42,000), it serves as an ideal location for events that cannot possibly fill such large arenas.
In addition to the Arena Proper, there are four exhibit halls within Reliant Arena. The largest hall is Exhibit Hall D, boasting 100,000 square feet of space. The second is Exhibit Hall A, which has 75,000 square feet of space. Exhibit Halls B and C each have 50,000 square feet of floor space as well.
The upper level maintains smaller meeting rooms and office space as well as the "Stockman's Club".
The Reliant Arena was originated in the early 1970s and its construction was completed in 1974 adjacent to the Astrohall. Although the Astrohall (renamed Reliant Hall temporarily) was its next door neighbor, it was demolished in May 2002 to make way for a parking lot when Reliant Stadium was being completed.
Different local secondary-league sports teams, including the Houston Aeros of the IHL, the Houston Hotshots, and the Texas Terror and Houston Thunderbears of the Arena Football League has been regularly using the Reliant Arena for their entertaining sports activities. With the exception of the Aeros, who have since moved to the Compaq Center and later to the Toyota Center, the teams who have played there have since folded.The Arena has since been utilized for several other events, including the National Catholic Youth Conference in 2003 and the peripheral events of the Houston Rodeo.
Another amazing aspect of this magnificent arena is that the Reliant Arena has also been a favorite stop for professional wrestling promotions such as World Wrestling Entertainment and World Championship Wrestling. Over the past decade, it has hosted multiple episodes of WCW Thunder and WWE SmackDown!, secondary shows hosted by each company. Additionally, it hosted WCW's Fall Brawl pay per view in 1993 and WWE's Axxess fan interaction festival during WrestleMania X-Seven in 2001.
In 2005, The Arena was used to house refugees from Hurricane Katrina after it was deemed that the Astrodome would be insufficient for comfortably housing over 30,000 refugees. It served as auxiliary refugee housing for victims of Hurricane Katrina along with other parts of Reliant Park, and was the site of the field clinic set up to care for those refugees. This led to the cancellation of a My Chemical Romance concert, which led to a small riot.
The Arena is a potential home for a relocated af2 team, the Texas Copperheads. The Copperheads played the 2006 season in nearby Katy.
