Venue Information

City Bank Coliseum (originally Lubbock Municipal Coliseum) is a 6,893-seat multi-purpose arena in Lubbock, Texas. Although the arena is located on the campus of Texas Tech University, it is owned and operated by the City of Lubbock.

The Texas Tech Red Raiders basketball team began playing at the Coliseum during the 1956–57 season. The Texas Tech Lady Raiders basketball team began playing select games during the 1976–77 and 1977–78 seasons. The Lady Raiders began playing only at Lubbock Municipal Coliseum beginning with the 1978–79 season. After the United Spirit Arena opened in 1999, both teams relocated to the university owned and operated arena. The Coliseum also hosted the Midwest Regional semi-final and final games of the 1966 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament won by the Texas Western Miners (now UTEP) who went on to upset the Kentucky Wildcats men's basketball team in the national championship game in College Park, Maryland.
