Denver Coliseum - Opened in 1952 and is still in use.

The main tenant for the Coliseum has been the Denver Nuggets of the ABA. They played here, along with the Denver Arena, from 1967 thru 1975. The Denver Mavericks of the IHL, played for just part of the 1959 season. The team moved to Minneapolis in December of 59. The Colorado / Denver Rangers of the IHL, were here from 1987 thru 1989. The minor hockey league team that played here the longest was the old Denver Spurs of the WHL / CHL. They lasted from 1976 - 1989. Finally, the Denver Cutthroats of the CHL played for 2 seasons, from 2012 - 2014 before folding.

Just north of downtown Denver and Coors field sits the Quonset hut shaped building known as the Denver Coliseum. Located at 4600 Humboldt Street, the building was opened in 1952. With a seating capacity of 10,200, it is a mid size arena that is perfect for ice shows, circuses and other events. It was also a part time home to the Denver Rockets / Nuggets of the old ABA. Even though the Pepsi Center takes most of the big name concerts and shows, the Coliseum is still a vibrant and useful arena.
