Venue Information

Municipal Auditorium is a 9,287-seat multi-purpose arena in Kansas City, Missouri. The arena opened in 1936 and features art deco architecture. It is home to the University of Missouri - Kansas City Kangaroos basketball team.

Municipal is connected to the H. Roe Bartle Convention Center by way of skywalks over 13th and Central streets. An underground walkway through a public parking garage provides access to the Kansas City Marriott Downtown.

The 19,500-seat Kemper Arena was built in 1974 to accommodate Kansas City's professional basketball teams that had been playing at the Auditorium. The Kansas City Kings played their first two seasons at the Audtorium, then returned for the majority of the 1979-80 season after the roof of Kemper Arena caved in on June 4, 1979. The Arena features a 92-foot ceiling - high enough for a trapeze artist - and a 26,200 square foot floor built of oak two-by-fours set on end - strong enough to support an elephant! Special sports lighting can be lowered to provide intense lighting at the center of the floor
