When visiting Allen, there’s nothing more thrilling than attending an Allen Americans hockey game at Credit Union of Texas Event Center and cheering on the team alongside hundreds of rallying fans cheering so loud that you can literally feel the heat through the ice!
Championship hockey has been the backbone of the American’s franchise, with the team having captured four consecutive league championships from 2013 through 2016. And now in their 14th season of action, you can catch a live game at Credit Union of Texas Event Center (Previously Allen Event Center) in Allen, which has been home to The Allen Americans Professional Hockey Club (ECHL) for more than 12 years.
Grab a Snack and an Ice-Cold Drink
One of the best reasons to check out a game is to eat game-day food! We’ll take any excuse to snack on oversized hot dogs, giant salty pretzels, and wash it down with an ice-cold beer! The concourse at CUTX Event Center has a variety of concession vendors from pizza to cookies and lots of variety in between! While you’re out there you might even bump into Biscuit the Bulldog roaming around the concourse and the arena making for a great photo opportunity!
Choose Your Experience
There are multiple ways you can enjoy an Allen Americans hockey game. For instance, you might enjoy sitting closer to the ice where you can literally feel speed and power up close and personal (and maybe catch a fight or two!), while sitting higher in the stands might give you the joy of watching the plays unfold and develop right before your eyes. Or you can catch the game in a suite where the event center’s team of culinary professionals will provide you with exclusive menu options that truly enhance your overall game-day experience. There’s no wrong or right way to enjoy game-day!
Rock the Red
R-E-D! R-E-D! R-E-D! A true highlight of an Allen Americans game is chanting RED as the arena goes wild with fans cheering as the lights go completely red across the ice. Unlike other sports, hockey games are truly non-stop action-packed, from the moment you walk up to the arena to when the puck drops. The best part of the gameday experience is all those explosive hits & unforgettable goals you’ll be watching in person and each and every game is guaranteed to be nothing short of fun and entertaining – both on and off the ice!
