  • Work starts on Fairgrounds Coliseum

    Work is starting on the new MAPS 4 Coliseum.

    The first step will be to demolish the southeast section of Norick Arena as the new facility will be built directly adjacent. Norick will continue to operate during the new construction which should wrap up in two years' time. The area to be razed is fenced off and will soon come down.

    Once the new coliseum is finished, the old one will be completely demolished and a connector will be built between the new arena and the super barn facility.

    Jim Norick Arena was completed in 1965. The new coliseum will cost over $100 million from MAPS and hotel tax revenue and feature 7,320 seats, a wide modern concourse and improved concessions and amenities.
