The Bert Ogden Arena: Presenting a New Era in Sports and Entertainment in South Texas
The city of Edinburg in Rio Grande Valley, Texas is without doubt a blessed city. Having positioned itself as the leading place in the region, Edinburg is now set to attract some of the biggest names in sports and music to South Texas, thanks to its latest addition: the new Bert Ogden Arena.
Having recently welcomed a 2,500-capacity amphitheater and a 17,000-seat soccer stadium, both housed in the HEB Park, the opening of the multimillion-dollar Bert Ogden Arena is turning Edinburg into the go-to entertainment hub in South Texas.
Location of the Arena
Built right in the heart of the Rio Grande Valley off Interstate 69, the Bert Ogden Arena is not just the largest indoor venue in South Texas, but is also a first-class entertainment venue right on the border of Texas and Mexico. With a population of over 1.2 million, Rio Grande Valley is the largest border community in Texas. This makes it a perfect location for the Arena both for the locals and for those who would want to enjoy great entertainment right in the heart of a predominantly Hispanic community and still feel at home.
Seating Capacity and Layout
Built at a cost of $82 million, the Bert Ogden Arena is a flexible and dynamic venue with a fixed 7,700 seats, as well as another 1,300 flexible seats. The arena provides a great unobstructed view for the 9,000 fans given that it’s perfectly structured with three levels of seating. To offer much more than a standard design, the seating arrangement is configured in a symmetrical design and horseshoe formation with a modern tiered elevation feel that gives every fan in the arena a better view of the stage, as well as an impeccably comfortable backstage area for performers.
The seats are designed with ultimate comfort in mind. Measuring 48 inches from front to back of each other, the seats are extremely spacious, comfortable and designed to offer ample legroom. They measure 22 inches instead of the standard 18 inches, and have a four feet front to back. In essence, this arena is built more like a luxurious film theater than a typical stadium.
The arena is undoubtedly built to offer fans a one-of-its-kind experience. That’s why it’s built with 12 private suites, six bunker/club suites and other finer details such as VIP parking, an upgraded audio and video system and a 40by20 foot LED scoreboard, which is the largest in South Texas! To further enhance fan experience, the Bert Ogden Arena offers Concourse TVs, fast-speed Wi-Fi and wrap-around LED Ribbon Board.
The Bert Ogden Arena is built and designed way above competition, especially in the Valley. From special flooring designs that include granite countertops, quartz floors to LED lighting in the parking lot, you’ll love visiting the Bert Ogden Arena. Unlike other arenas, the Bert Ogden Arena has its restrooms made with porcelain as well as stairways made with concrete instead of the common metal.
The sweltering heat and high temperatures that is a common fixture in Texas won’t be a problem in the Ogden. That’s because the arena is fixed with modern air conditioning units that are the largest in South Texas.
What to Expect in Terms of Events
Even though the arena is the official home of the Rio Grande Valley Viper, an NBA G-League team affiliated to the Houston Rockets, it’s set to attract more than just G-League fixtures. As a dynamic venue, the Bert Ogden Arena will also host music concerts, family and comedy shows, live WWE events, local graduations, rodeo events, conferences, corporate events, commencements, as well as political functions. In short, you won’t lack an event to satisfy your entertainment thirsts all year round.
In the management’s belief that food experience is just as significant as the entertainment or sporting experience, the arena has partnered with award-winning Luby’s Culinary Services, to offer five-star food, beverages and other high-quality restaurant concessions, as well as modernized time-honored delicacies. This will offer a unique dining experience through custom and innovative menus.
