The Akins Ford Arena at The Classic Center is home to the University of Georgia Ice Dogs and Classic City Rollergirls, but this is just the beginning of all the exciting events we have in store for this arena. The removable ice rink also will allow The Classic Center to host ice entertainment shows and to offer public skating for the holiday season beginning in November. In addition, the new seating allows us to accommodate sporting events with arena-style seating for up to 2,000 attendees and concerts/shows for up to 5,000 attendees. Events like cheerleading tournaments, volleyball tournaments, and taekwondo tournaments are just some of the possibilities. We look forward to bringing to Athens more entertainment options and strengthening the appeal of downtown Athens as a tourist attraction!
The Ice Dogs are returning to Akins Ford Arena in October for another season of domination on the ice!
