Allen is home to some exciting spectator sporting events such as Allen Americans hockey (ECHL) and Dallas Sidekicks indoor soccer (Major Arena Soccer League), both played at Allen Event Center. We also host spectacular tournaments across the city such as the National Collegiate Wrestling Championship, Triple Crown Softball Tournaments, U.S. Figure Skating , cheer competitions and so much more.
Championship hockey is the backbone of the Americans franchise since being founded prior to the 2009-10 season, with the Red, White and Blue having captured four consecutive ECHL Championships from 2013--2016. As the NHL Minnesota Wild’s AA affiliate, the Americans have called Allen home 11 years and draw from a large local and regional fan base. There’s nothing more fun in Allen than being in the stands during an Allen Americans hockey game! Get your tickets here.
The Dallas Sidekicks, a professional indoor soccer team of the Major Arena Soccer League (MASL), is also headquartered in Allen and plays home games at Allen Event Center. The MASL represents the highest level of professional indoor soccer in the worldand features teams across the United States and Mexico from November through March each season.
