American Airlines Center Events

American Airlines Center opened in 2001 as the new home of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks and NHL’s Dallas Stars. Unlike so many arenas and stadiums with outward appearances that could at best be described as “functional,” American Airlines Center is characterized by attractive red-brick facades that make it an attractive centerpiece to the rejuvenated center of Dallas. Both the Mavs and the Stars have single championships to their names, with the Mavs’ triumph in 2011 sending their fans at the American Airlines Center into raptures. As well as all regular season and playoff Mavericks and Stars home games, American Airlines Center hosts a wide variety of concerts, performances, and other sporting competitions. Hungry? American Airlines Center is the right place for whatever you fancy, be it a quick bite or a gourmet sit-down meal. The venue’s many shops and kiosks also sell a broad range of team and event merchandise.
