Delmar Fieldhouse is a new $35.2 million 5,000 seat arena and obviously doesn’t come with hefty price tag of an NBA arena. The 139,874-square-foot facility features modern locker and training rooms. It also features a maple wood floor that is expandable and retractable.
Although fans will no longer have easy access to downtown Houston, they will have access to the always bustling Galleria area of Houston. Delmar Fieldhouse is located about five miles from the Galleria Mall.
Some fans will see this move as a downgrade, others will applaud this move by Commissioner Duer Sharp and SWAC as it enables the conference to save money without sacrificing a quality venue.
