The Kansas City Municipal Auditorium is a multi-purpose facility located in Kansas City, Missouri. It opened in 1935 and features Streamline Modern and Art Deco architecture and architectural details, which was a common feature of design in the 1930s.

Over the decades, the auditorium has mainly been a home to various basketball teams and events. It's first foray came in the early 1960s with the Kansas City Steers of the short lived American Basketball League. A decade later it served as the home court of the Kansas City Kings of the NBA before moving cross town and ultimately settling in Sacramento. And then for one year it hosted the Kansas City Sizzlers, another short lived team and league.

While the Kansas City Auditorium has had blips of professional basketball, it has an even more storied history with college basketball. It was the home to three of the first four NCAA Final Fours. It now hosts the Big XII basketball tournament and is the current home to the finals of the NAIA Basketball tournament.
