Bossier City Arena - CenturyTel Center

Bossier City, Louisana

The flexible, multipurpose 270,000-SF arena accommodates events of various sizes and types, such as hockey, PKCA Rodeo, NBA exhibition games, concerts, and other activities. In the past this venue served as home to the Bossier City-Shreveport Mudbugs CHL Ice Hockey Team, and the Battle Wings arena football franchise. The venue holds over 14,000 spectators and was designed with acoustic/sound, lighting, and curtain systems adaptable to smaller crowds. Retractable seating and a large exhibition floor add to its flexibility. The CenturyTel Center has changed the image of Bossier City and provided a much-needed catalyst for the new Bossier City Riverfront Development District.
