Knockout Sports Arena Approved by Arlington City Council 

Arlington, already home to some of the biggest names in sports, is about to become home to yet another live sporting venue, Knockout Sports ArenaMaxwell Fisher, AICP, Managing Director of Masterplan Frisco assisted Angelo Park and Andre Bailey in securing a Specific Use Permit from the City of Arlington for an approximately 16,000 SF Las Vegas-style live boxing entertainment venue and restaurant at 1520 Nolan Ryan Expressway. Over the past several months, Masterplan assisted with lobbying community leaders and addressing land use challenges including securing remote parking. This facility, an adaptive re-use of an abandoned Joe’s Crab Shack, will be a regional draw offering 5-star VIP meals and some of the best live boxing and MMA fighting entertainment outside of Las Vegas.   

Thank you to Mr. Park and Mr. Bailey for allowing Masterplan to be part of your vision to round out Arlington’s world-class Entertainment District.
