Lubbock Cotton Kings

The arena had been home to the Lubbock Cotton Kings of the Central Hockey League, however after being unable to come to an agreement with the city of Lubbock for the use of the arena, the team ceased operations prior to the 2007-2008 season.[1]

Texas Chaparrals

During the 1971-1972 American Basketball Association season, the Lubbock Municipal Coliseum served as a sometimes home court for the then-named Texas Chaparrals, a one-year experiment by the Dallas Chaparrals to expand their appeal to a state-wide audience. The Chaparrals eventually became the San Antonio Spurs of the American Basketball Association and later of the NBA.

Other events

Many events formerly held at the Coliseum, such as Texas Tech basketball, have since moved to the newer United Spirit Arena on the other side of the Texas Tech University Campus.

City Bank Coliseum shares a parking lot with Texas Tech's Jones AT&T Stadium, where the Texas Tech Red Raiders play football.

During the 1980s, the Lubbock Municipal Coliseum was a popular stop for touring rock bands. Tickets at the time were between $12 and $13. Sammy Hagar began his VOA tour with a Coliseum show in 1984. KISS kicked off the 1990 Hot in the Shade tour in the Coliseum. Major concert tours have since moved to United Spirit Arena, but the Coliseum still hosts concerts with capacity of up to 8,728. It has a 60-by-40-foot portable stage and two video screens as well as three dressing rooms.

City Bank Auditorium

Adjacent to the coliseum is the 2,821-seat City Bank Auditorium, used for stage shows, concerts and other special events and featuring a 96-by-45-foot permanent stage and eight dressing rooms. Both facilities share the same concession stands.
