Reunion Arena was an indoor arena in the Reunion district of downtown Dallas, Texas (USA). The arena held 17,300 for basketball and 17,000 for ice hockey. It is currently being demolished, and the site is scheduled to be cleared by the end of September 2009.


Reunion Arena was completed in 1980 at a cost of $27 million. It was named for the early mid-nineteenth century commune, La Reunion. In late 2005, the arena and the Dallas Convention Center were used as the primary Dallas shelters for evacuees of Hurricane Katrina.

Home teams

The arena was the home of the Dallas Mavericks from 1980 to 2001 and the Dallas Stars from 1993 to 2001. Both teams moved to the American Airlines Center in 2001.
