This is a list of indoor arenas in the United States.

List of largest municipal arenas in the United States by seating capacity[edit]

This is a list of seating capacities for sports and entertainment arenas in the United States with at least 3,000 seats. The list is composed mostly of arenas that house sports teams (basketball, ice hockey and arena football) and serve as indoor venues for concerts and expositions. The arenas in this table are ranked by maximum capacity. College venues that also host pro teams (such as the Thomas & Mack Center and the Cajundome) are included. Domed stadiums (i.e. the Superdome in New Orleans and the Georgia Dome in Atlanta) are excluded from this list.

  • Rows shaded in yellow indicates arena is permanent home to an NBA (National Basketball Association) and/or NHL (National Hockey League) franchise.

List of largest college sports arenas in the United States by seating capacity[edit]

This list includes indoor arenas which serve as home to college sports teams. Arenas which are shared by both pro and college teams, such as Verizon Center, Madison Square Garden and the Cajundome, appear in both this table and the list of municipal arenas. Domed stadiums are excluded from this list, with the exception of those which can be configured to serve as the home of major college basketball programs (i.e. the Carrier Dome).
