Wichita Wild Owner to Build Arena

Stay up-to-date with KAKE News:

4-20-07 - The Wichita Wild Arena football team will have a new home, and venues in Sedgwick County could soon have some new competition.

Team owner Wink Hartman announced Friday afternoon that he is going to build the $20 million arena on 77th Street in Park City. It would seat just under 5,000 people - much smaller than the Kansas Coliseum or the planned Sedgwick County Arena.

The Wild is kicking off its first season by playing in the Kansas Coliseum.

Hartman says his arena would serve the football team for now. He did say they would be open to other business opportunities in the future.

The new arena could be open by next summer.
