Columbus Civic Center

CivicCenterColumbus Civic Center is a 10,000-seat multi-purpose arena in Columbus, Georgia, built in 1996.

The arena was built in 1996, along with a Softball Complex, to fully complete South Commons (an area consisting of a baseball and football stadium, and a skateboard park). The venue replaced the Municipal Auditorium, which was constructed in 1955.

It is home to the Columbus Cottonmouths ice hockey team, Auburn University ice hockey team, and the Columbus Lions indoor football team.

The arena was formerly home to the Columbus Riverdragons basketball team from 2001–2005, the Columbus Wardogs indoor football team from 2001–2004, the Chattahoochee Valley Vipers indoor football team in 2006, and the Columbus Comets indoor soccer team in 1997.

The arena was also the primary concert venue in the Greater Columbus area until Auburn Arena in Auburn, Alabama was completed; it is still used for some concerts despite this.

World Wrestling Entertainment has performed at the Civic Center since it opened.
