AT&T Center (originally SBC Center) is an indoor arena, located in San Antonio, Texas, USA. It seats 18,581, for basketball, 13,800, for ice hockey and 19,000, for concerts or religious gatherings and contains 2,018 club seats, 50 luxury suites and 32 bathrooms (16 Male and 16 Female).
It was completed in 2002, as the SBC Center, at a cost of $175 million, financed by county-issued bonds, which were supported by a hotel-occupancy and car rental tax increase and an additional contribution of $28.5 million from the Spurs. SBC Communications, Inc. purchased the naming rights to the facility under a 20-year, $41 million naming rights agreement with Bexar County, the San Antonio Spurs and the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo in July 2000. SBC Communications changed its name to AT&T in November 2005 after its purchase of AT&T Corporation. The arena officially changed its name to AT&T Center in January 2006.
It is home to the San Antonio Spurs, of the NBA, the San Antonio Rampage, of the AHL, in the winter-spring season and the San Antonio Silver Stars, of the WNBA, in the summer.
The PRCA, who holds the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo every February, also hosts an Xtreme Bulls tour event annually (at around the same time as the Stock Show). On the weekend of August 1–2, 2009, the PBR also hosted a Built Ford Tough Series event at this arena, after having held a BFTS event at the Alamodome in 2007 and 2008.
In addition to many local community and sporting events, the San Antonio Sports Car Association holds autocross competitions in the parking lot each month.
