Fifth Third Arena

Fifth Third Arena, home of the Cincinnati Bearcats, seats over 13,000 spectators and is located in the heart of UC’s campus. The competition floor is surrounded by a full service restaurant, and bar one floor above that. The Armory, our athlete village, will be separate from the competition, and a nice break for those taking on each Regional Event. To top it off, vendor village will be a regional experience like no other, located on Sheakley lawn, immediately outside the box office.
