Arena Auditorium Renovation Moving Forward


Arena Auditorium
Universiity of Wyoming

The renovation of the University of Wyoming’s Arena-Auditorium has received a great deal of support from a special group of individuals over the past several weeks.  That special group is made up of former Cowboy basketball players who have offered their financial support through generous donations.

      Among the group of former Cowboys who have pledged donations are: Theo Ratliff, Reggie Slater, Dick Scarlett and Robert Rhynsburger.


      Phase I of the Arena-Auditorium renovation will consist of approximately $12 million in improvements.  Construction will begin in March 2014 and be completed by November 2014 — prior to the start of the 2014-15 basketball season.  Phase I of the project will include: the new Theo Ratliff Family High-Altitude Training Center; new locker rooms for both the Cowboy and Cowgirl basketball teams; a new athletic-training/sports-medicine area; a new floor; new lighting and sound systems in the Arena; new video boards and digital LED ribbon boards; and an audio-visual control room.


      Phase II will include enhanced fan facilities throughout the concourse, including: new bathrooms and concession areas; a new entryway on the east side of the Arena-Auditorium that will include a new ticket office to better serve fans’ needs for events in both the Arena-Auditorium and War Memorial Stadium; a Wyoming Store to provide fans a location to purchase Cowboy and Cowgirl merchandise; a UW Athletics Hall of Fame area; a new club-seating area; a new elevator to provide improved ADA access to the floor level for fans; and a new commissary to support concession areas in the Arena and War Memorial Stadium.
