Sprint Center is a 20,000 seat, multi-use indoor arena in downtown Kansas City that hosts a multitude of high-profile concerts and sporting events, including the Big 12 Men’s Basketball Tournament. Winner of the Community Impact Capstone Award from the Kansas City Business Journal, the ELLIPTICAL glass building was developed through a partnership between the City of Kansas City and Anschutz Entertainment Group and is considered the catalyst for billions of dollars of reinvestment in downtown Kansas City, including the adjacent Power & Light District.
