Chesapeake Energy Arena (originally Ford Center and formerly Oklahoma City Arena) is a multi-purpose arena, located in downtown Oklahoma City.

It is the home of the NBA's Oklahoma City Thunder. The arena also served as home for the CHL's Oklahoma City Blazers, until the team folded in July 2009, as well as the Oklahoma City Yard Dawgz arena football team, which relocated to the Cox Convention Center. Of special note, it served as the temporary home for the NBA's New Orleans/Oklahoma City Hornets, during the 2005–06 and 2006–07 seasons.

It also plays host to major concerts, family and social events, conventions, ice shows, civic events and sporting events from local universities and high schools.

It has hosted many WWE events such as Raw, SmackDown, and Unforgiven 2005. A record-setting Raw was held in the arena on June 30, 2008 with 11,560 fans on hand. This was the most WWE tickets sold in Oklahoma in WWE history. Raw came to the Chesapeake Energy Arena on September 25, 2006 and March 1, 2010 with Cheech & Chong appearing as the evening's guest hosts. During the show on September 25, 2006, the opening of the show suffered a blackout, but lights were restored shortly after the night began. The March 1 show was the first-ever WWE sell out of the Chesapeake Energy Arena with 14,708 fans on hand. Also on October 1, 2010, WWE came back to the Chesapeake Energy Arena to do the first live SmackDown on Syfy. WWE returned in March 2011 to do a Raw house show. WWE came back to do a live Raw SuperShow on October 10, 2011. WWE returned for a Raw SuperShow on February 6, 2012.
