Venue Information


The Tucson Convention Center (TCC), previously named the Tucson Community Center, is a large multi-purpose convention center located in downtown Tucson, Arizona. Built in 1971, the location includes a 9,275-seat indoor arena, two performing arts venues, and 205,000 square feet of meeting space.

The current arena is outdated and operates at a 3 million dollar deficit every year. In 2005, a feasibility study was performed, revealing that this project is possible. Supporters claim that the new arena would add significantly to the Rio Nuevo downtown redevelopment project. Currently, most performances in Arizona are held in Phoenix because of the larger facilities.

On April 4, 2007, Tucson city council approved funding of $130 million for a new 12,338 seat arena. Ground could be broken on the downtown arena as early as August 2008. The arena's design was inspired by the Desert Tortoise and the majority of the seating, including the entire lower bowl, will be 29 feet underground.
