Chesapeake Energy Arena
Whether it’s the action of an NBA game, or the excitement of a live concert or world-class event, more than one million guests create memories each year at Chesapeake Energy Arena, which is home to the Oklahoma City Thunder.
While it is managed by SMG, Chesapeake Energy Arena is owned by the City of Oklahoma City and was the premier project of its visionary one-cent sales tax capital improvement program, Metropolitan Area Projects (MAPS). On March 4, 2008, Oklahoma City voters overwhelmingly approved an additional temporary one-cent sales tax to fund several major improvements, including audio upgrades, video boards and security features. The projects also included new terrace suites and lounges, bunker suites, new and renovated locker rooms, as well as a new grand entrance, multistory atrium, new restaurants, clubs, concession areas, team offices and a family fun zone, which were completed in 2012.
