What about minor league teams? I'm pretty sure the Ft Worth Convention Center is ready to host any minor hockey/basketball or even arena football events
It's been talked over on this forum multiple times that out of the Big Four, the best shot Fort Worth has is NBA.

We have a couple minor league teams already (Cats in baseball, Texas Bramahs in CHL hockey). The Convention Center held two minor league hockey teams, an Arena Football team for one year, an NBA D-league team for a few this past decade, had WWF Raw one time and even the Spurs played there for a game. The problem with the Convention Center arena (a.k.a., the UFO) is that it's too small, expecially for a city that size.


It will be replaced eventually. Don't know if they're just going to make the arena bigger, or just get rid of it and make more convention space, but it will be changed. There's been news of an arena in the Cultural District next to the WRMC for years now. I'm just following that.
