Tulsa Oilers are impressive; 7th among 27 teams in the league.

Oklahoma City would be a perfect fit for an ECHL expansion or relocation franchise...

Cox Convention Center Arena, Oklahoma City - 13,399

Pretty sure that as long as the Thunder D-league affiliate plays in the Myriad, professional hockey will never occupy that building as a primary or even secondary tenant.  Better chance to have the new fairgrounds arena do that, as the footprint is better for the ECHL.  I'd love to have that old rivalry back, but the right owners (read that as anyone not with the last name of Funk) will have to be the ones to run the team.

Still too early to get a take on the ECHL.  Funks  have invested in a new practice facility in northeast Oklahoma City teamed with Integris Oklahoma Hospitals and will receive $37 million to build a multipurpose stadium (8,000 - 10,000 seat range) for OKC outdoor sports capable of expansion beyond 20,000 at a yet-to-be determined site.


Unsubstantiated rumor resides around the Thunder ownership not being too keen on ice hockey returning to OKC at The Peake or the current 14,000 seat Cox Convention Center Arena (current home of the G-League Oklahoma City Blue).



New coliseum will be flexible - 4,872 permanent lower bowl chair back seats with expanded seating on an upper platform with risers & other seating to accommodate 2,000.  The new coliseum will be 'booked' upon construction.  The coliseum will be crafted for horse shows & events; next to the new 200,000 sq. ft., Bennett Events Center poised to handle related trades shows and events.  Coliseum will seat 7,000 for ice hockey; remind you, there are no immediate plans for an ice plant for the new coliseum; nor has the city ever mentioned the new coliseum as a site for ice hockey.  The current Cox Center does have an ice plant underneath the arena floor.

Although many may disagree, IMHO, the old Myriad is to valuable to be demolished--with 963 underground parking spaces and overflow space if needed.   City will need the extra 100,000 sq. ft exhibition hall, 16,000 sq. ft., ballroom and extra room space to continue to attract quality tier II conventions to OKC.
