Product Description


K-182-D-6, 45488

Sam Houston Coliseum was an indoor arena located in Houston, Texas. The arena was opened in November 1937 and had a capacity of 9,200. It was built in conjunction with the Houston Music Hall, which was adjacent to the Coliseum.

In 1946, permanent ice chillers were installed in the floor to accommodate an ice hockey rink for Houston's first pro ice hockey team - the Houston Skippers of the USHL. The Skippers changed their name the following season to the Houston Huskies and called the Coliseum home until their demise in 1949.

Prior to Hofheinz Pavilion being built, the Houston Cougars played select home games at the coliseum.

The venue also played host to the Houston Apollos of the CPHL from 1965 to 1969, Houston Mavericks of the ABA from 1967 to 1969, the Houston Aeros of the WHA from 1972 to 1975, and the Houston Apollos of the CHL from 1979 to 1981. The Aeros moved to the Houston Summit which opened in November 1975 and played their final 4 seasons there.

The Houston Mavericks of the American Basketball Association played their home games in Sam Houston Coliseum from 1967 through 1969.
