Product Description

COCA-COLA FIELD, HSBC ARENA & MEMORIAL AUDITORIUM

B-958-M

COCA-COLA FIELD: (formerly Dunn Tire Park, North AmeriCare Park, Downtown Ballpark and Pilot Field) is a 19,500-seat baseball park in Buffalo, New York that hosted its first regular season baseball game on April 14, 1988, as the tenants of the facility, the Buffalo Bisons, defeated the Denver Zephyrs, 1-0.

Oriole Park at Camden Yards is often considered the trendsetter among American cities towards retro-styled, baseball-only stadiums located in downtown cores. However, the architectural firm that designed Camden Yards, HOK Sport (now known as Populous), originally implemented its design with Coca-Cola Field, which opened four years prior.

HSBC ARENA: Buffalo Sabres (NHL) (1996–present) Buffalo Bandits (NLL) (1996–present) Buffalo Destroyers (AFL) (1999–2003) Buffalo Blizzard (NPSL) (1996–2001) Buffalo Wings (RHI) (1997–1999)

HSBC Arena opened September 21, 1996, replacing the Buffalo Memorial Auditorium. It was known during construction as Crossroads Arena. Naming rights were sold to Marine Midland Bank, part of the HSBC banking group, and the building was renamed Marine Midland Arena before the first game had been played. In 1999, as part of HSBC's worldwide corporate rebranding, the arena's name was changed to HSBC Arena.

MEMORIAL AUDITORIUM: Buffalo Bisons (AHL) (1940–1970) Buffalo Sabres (NHL) (1970–1996) Buffalo Braves (NBA) (1970–1978) Buffalo Stallions (MISL) (1979–1984) Buffalo Bandits (MILL) (1992–1996) Buffalo Blizzard (NPSL) (1992–1996) Buffalo Stampede (RHI) (1994–1995)

Buffalo Memorial Auditorium (also known as The Aud) was an indoor arena in downtown Buffalo, New York. It hosted the Buffalo Bisons of the American Hockey League, the Buffalo Sabres of the National Hockey League, the Buffalo Braves of the National Basketball Association, the Buffalo Stallions of the Major Soccer League, the Buffalo Bandits of the Major Indoor Lacrosse League, the Buffalo Blizzard of the second National Professional Soccer League, and the Buffalo Stampede of Roller Hockey International.
