The Allen County War Memorial Coliseum is committed to providing accessible seating opportunities to all of our guests. When a guest has purchased a ticket to a non-accessible seat and needs to exchange for an accessible seat, every effort will be made to accommodate the guest with comparable seats. If such seat is unavailable, the guest will be offered available seating in a non-comparable location. As with all ticket sales, event seating goes quickly so buy early to get the best availability.


Accessible seating at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum is dispersed both vertically and horizontally throughout the facilities in numerous price ranges. The Memorial Coliseum will provide every opportunity for guests to purchase accessible seating through the same means and under the same terms and conditions as other ticket purchases. Accessible seating, however, is limited. The best way to assure yourself the best ticket and companion seat(s) is to purchase your tickets as early as possible in the desired category. Please remember that the tickets are sold on a first-purchase basis and there is no guarantee that any tickets will remain unsold and available for any category of tickets or any specific event.


Companion seating is subject to availability at the time of purchase. The Allen County War Memorial Coliseum will make accessible seating available to their companions.

The sensory room is located on the 100 Level Concourse and will be open for all events taking place at the Memorial Coliseum Arena.
