Intrust Bank Arena - Valley Center, KS

INTRUST Bank Arena is a 15,000-seat multi-purpose arena in Wichita, Kansas. It is home to the Wichita Thunder ice hockey team and possibly a potential reincarnation of the Wichita Stealth arena football team. It is aslo the largest indoor arena in the state of Kansas in terms of seating capacity. Intrust Bank Arena will also be the site of first and second round games of the 2011 NCAA Women's Division I Basketball Tournament. It is also expected that there will be a push by Wichita officials to lure the University of Kansas and Kansas State University, two of the state's three Division I basketball programs (the other being Wichita State University), to play one home game each year in the state's largest city.

According to The Wichita Eagle the arena will seat 15,000 for hockey and basketball games, and 17,000 for concerts.

On January 10, 2008, the city announced it had reached a 25-year, $8.75 million naming rights deal with INTRUST Bank, which complements a 20-year, $3 million deal with Cessna Aircraft Company to name an adjacent outdoor plaza, and a councourse area deal with Spirit AeroSystems. The city of Wichita has also placed a bid to host the first 2 rounds of the 2011, 2012, or 2013 men's NCAA Division I basketball tournament.

On October 7, 2009, it was announced that the opening act for the INTRUST Bank Arena would be country music singer Brad Paisley in concert along with Justin Moore and Miranda Lambert.
