HIDALGO — A lead trade magazine for concert and events venues, Venues Today, has named State Farm Arena top in Texas for venues of its size.
The local arena qualified for the recognition among arenas that have capacity between 5,000 and 10,000 people.
Across the Lone Star State, for venues of all sizes, State Farm Arena, which has a capacity of 7,500 people edges out Houston’s Toyota Center, which has a capacity of 19,000 people, to claim the fifth spot, behind Houston’s Reliant Stadium, (71,500 capacity), Dallas’s American Airlines Center (20,000 capacity), San Antonio’s AT&T Center (18,000 capacity), and Austin’s Frank Erwin Center (16,800 capacity).
