A trade publication focused on event venues took notice of one in Fort Wayne last month.
The Allen County War Memorial Coliseum placed 13th among similar-sized facilities worldwide in the “Top Stop” rankings of Venues Today, based on ticket sales in June and July.
Having the 11th best-selling event during the ranking period from June 16 through July 15 helped with the “Top Stop” ranking.
The high-ranking “Hot Ticket” event was the June 25 World Wrestling Entertainment "Raw Supershow," which attracted a crowd of more than 8,000.

A statement on the rankings by Memorial Coliseum mentioned that another trade publication, Facilities Magazine, had designated the local venue a “Prime Site” for the last 12 years in a row.
