Will a $183 Million University of Alabama Basketball Arena Win Approval?

University Of Alabama

University of Alabama trustees are considering a proposal to build a $183 million basketball arena.

Details of the proposed 10,136-seat arena were presented to the University of Alabama System Board of Trustees on Thursday.

It’s pending approval in the board’s meeting Friday.

The arena would replace 54-year-old Coleman Coliseum, but no timetable for completion was presented.

The proposal gave a scheduled bid date for April 2023. It would have 60% of the seats in the lower bowl, with student seating stretching around most of it and house men’s and women’s basketball and gymnastics.
