UC Bearcats’ Fifth Third Arena still on pace to reopen for 2018-19 season
The $87 million renovation of the University of Cincinnati’s Fifth Third Arena continues on time and on budget, according to UC Athletic Director Mike Bohn.
Bohn conducted a media tour this week at the construction site, with UC also revealing seating and pricing options. The arena capacity will change from its former 13,176 to 12,012 for its reopening next season, Bohn said.
UC is scheduled to return for the 2018-19 basketball season at its on-campus arena. The Bearcats are playing 2017-18 men’s home games at Northern Kentucky University’s BB&T Arena.
