The Chisholm Trail Coliseum is an 8,000-seat multi-purpose arena located at the Garfield County Fairgrounds in Enid, Oklahoma. The coliseum, also called the Garfield County Expo Center was built in 1998.[1] It was home to the Oklahoma Storm basketball team, and also serves as a site for various conventions. In late April 2009, the Coliseum suffered damage when it was hit by an EF2 tornado, [2] and again in August 2011 when a 96mph wind storm hit Enid.[3]
