About KeyArena

Located in the extensive entertainment complex of Seattle Center to the north of the downtown area, KeyArena is the city’s premier multi-purpose venue for large sporting events, musical performances and circus shows. Its capacity ranges between 15,000 and 17,000, depending on its configuration, and it serves as the home for the Seattle Redhawks University basketball team and Seattle Storm of the WNBA.

Previously known as the Coliseum, the arena was remodelled in the mid-90s to meet NBA standards and when it opened again in April 1995, its naming rights had been sold to Cleveland-based KeyCorp who re-dubbed it KeyArena. The complex includes numerous restaurants, including two grills, World’s Fare global street food and Uptown Kitchen, as well as beverage stands scattered around the arena. Punters can opt for general arena seating for sporting events and musical performances, or there are private suites available for close friends or business groups to take in all the action in style. In addition to previously hosting the Seattle SuperSonics and Thunderbirds ice hockey teams, during the last six decades, the arena has seen sell-out crowds for The Beatles and Metallica, together with U2 and Depeche Mode. It’s part of the larger Seattle Center entertainment precinct, home to the modernist International Fountain that was built for the 1962 World’s Fair, together with the iconic, 84 metre Space Needle observation deck and revolving restaurant, once the tallest building west of the Mississippi River.

KeyArena is connected to the downtown area along the Seattle Center Monorail, as well as numerous different public bus routes. It’s also conveniently accessed by bike along both the Myrtle Edwards and Dexter Avenue bike trails, and bicycle parking is available on-site.

KeyArena first opened in 1962 as the Washington State Pavilion, designed by architect Paul Thiry for the Century 21 Exposition. It was later remodelled into the sporting and entertainment venue of the Washington State Coliseum, renamed the Seattle Center Coliseum for the grounds on which it was situated, before becoming KeyArena.
