Wow, really starting to look like a finished project at this point. Impressive.

Has anyone heard if the national and conference championship banners will be replaced with new ones? I'm curious if they'll redesign those to meet space requirements or just to make them more dynamic in this new environment. Finding the proper location for those is a good problem to have. A "problem" they certainly don't have across town.

I suspect the banners are one of the surprises they are keeping under wraps until the arena opens

Personally, I'd kinda like to see them hang from the rafters. Conferences titles etc on one side, NC and final fours on the other side.

I would agree--let's showcase those.

I'm always amused watching a televised game when they take the obligatory camera shot up in the rafters and the school has five separate banners for its all-time "NCAA Participation" and a handful of conference championships. If UC hung those individually the rafters would be full. Our National Championship and Final Four banners should be prominent for those camera shots in every nationally televised game. Tradition lives here and that message needs to be repeated regularly.

Here's the video that shows the scoreboard and other elements of the project...




EDIT... I didn't see the video embedded in the Tweet. Sorry for the duplication, but I'll leave my link up too.

I say we hang that blue blob from Xavier from the rafters.

Does anyone know if any of the seats are bench seats and if so where they are located??? Any idea when mini-packs or single game tickets will go on sale?

Wondering the same thing about the mini-plans. My guess is they're hoping they don't have to sell those this year if they can fill the place with full season tickets. A sellout before the season begins would be great for the program, but I don't expect it.

It would suggest that fewer mini-plans will be available and it will be a short window for purchasing those. Regarding bench seats, I was surprised when I learned that some will remain. Those may indeed be the only seats available if and when mini-plans go on sale.

This should be the season when UC home attendance is higher than X for the first time in a long time.

RE: New 5/3 Arena update
I don't remember when they went on sale last year but it was kind of late considering season ticket sales were up and we were playing in a 9,000 seat arena. I'd expect miniplans to be sold late again and sell extremely quickly due to the marquee games plus new arena.

To add to what OKIcat said, the bench/bleacher seats will only be in the upper portions of the upper bowl.. something like the last 5 or 6 rows

RE: New 5/3 Arena update
Super impressive line up !

"We strategically work to partner with local leaders who fuel the intensity of interest around our athletics programs, Fifth Third Arena and our award-winning campus," Mike Bohn, UC Director of Athletics said. "Improving the gameday experience for our phenomenal fans is always paramount on our list of improvements for coming home to what we believe will be the finest on-campus arena in the country. We will continue to look for additional Cincinnati favorites to join our roster of options available in the new arena."





// MAIN CONCOURSE CONCESSIONS
The 360-degree main concourse will feature several local new franchises:

FRISCH'S BIG BOY – will serve Big Boy burgers, fries, and chicken tenders on the main concourse in the southeast corner near sections 118 and 119.

SKYLINE CHILI – Coneys or kids' meals can be purchased at any of the three Skyline locations inside the arena including on the main course level's east concourse near section 117.

TASTE OF BELGIUM – will serve their signature chicken & waffles as well as pretzels with beer cheese in the northeast corner of the main course level near section 113.

Graeter's, Montgomery Inn, Servatti and Skyline Chili will be available to fans with access to the Champions Club area on the main concourse of the arena (sections 103 through 105 as well as both the sideline and baseline loge boxes).


// UPPER CONCOURSE CONCESSIONS
The new 360-degree upper concourse features:

BUFFALO WINGS & RINGS – will serve bone-in wings, fries, and onion rings on the upper concourse level of the west concourse near section 203.

SKYLINE CHILI – will have two kiosks on the east and west concourse near sections 203 and 213.

Additional concession items will be available, including popcorn, funnel cakes, cotton candy, German roasted nuts and more. Walking Tacos, a Nippert Stadium favorite, will also be sold in Fifth Third Arena.

In addition to new food options, the ar[i]ena
will feature bars at the north end of the main and upper concourses.[/i]



// THE ARMORY BAR
The Armory Bar located on the main concourse will highlight the history of Armory Fieldhouse, the home of Bearcats basketball from 1954-76. From Dec. 6, 1957, the first home game of the season, to December 7, 1963, the men's basketball team went undefeated for a span of 72 games in Armory. The bar features the original floor from Shoemaker Center.


// THE QUEEN CITY BAR
The Queen City Bar located on the upper concourse features a map of the City of Cincinnati and highlights UC Athletics' partnerships with Braxton, MadTree and Rhinegeist.

Wow! Absolutely exciting news. The food and beverage options are going to be great. Nice to see partnerships with the local business community. I think an email to Bohn is warranted.
