INTRUST Bank Arena Ranked as 39th Busiest Arena in the U.S. Through First Quarter

The SMG-managed INTRUST Bank Arena finished as the 39th busiest arena in the United States and 79th in the world in Pollstar Magazine’s 2018 First-Quarter Top 100 Arena Venues Rankings. Rankings are based on tickets sold worldwide for shows played between 1/1/18 and 3/31/18. INTRUST Bank Arena was also the fifth highest ranked arena in the continental United States managed by SMG, the Philadelphia-based venue operator that manages more than 230 facilities, nearly 70 arenas and over 1.75 million seats worldwide. The totals do not include tenant sport team ticket counts, some family shows, or SMG-produced special events. Pollstar is a weekly trade publication covering the worldwide concert industry.

Additionally, INTRUST Bank Arena hosted 5 of the Top 100 Tours through the first quarter, including Pink, The Harlem Globetrotters, Avenged Sevenfold, Winter Jam and Disney On Ice.

“It has been a tremendous first three months of 2018 for our team at INTRUST Bank Arena,” said A.J. Boleski, SMG General Manager. “From the sold out P!nk concert to the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship First/Second Rounds, we could not have asked for a better way to kick off this year. The success of these events, especially the NCAA tournament, is a huge testament to the outpouring of support from the community and the tireless efforts from our staff here at the arena. Thank you to everyone involved with making Wichita shine this past quarter.”

Upcoming events at INTRUST Bank Arena include Kevin Hart (April 12), Outcry (April 13), Wichita Force Football (April 14), Wichita Thunder Playoffs (April 14 & 15) and PBR (April 28). For a full list of upcoming events, please visit
