Mohegan Sun Earns No. 1 Indoor Arena Ranking in the World
For the first time ever, Mohegan Sun Arena has earned the prestigious honor of No. 1 Indoor Arena in the world for its size (5,001 – 10,000-seat capacity) based on ticket sales. National industry trade publications, Pollstar and VenuesNow, announced the rankings in their 2021 Year End Special issues, which report the top-selling tours and top venues across the globe. Additionally, Mohegan Sun Arena finished the year ranked as the No. 10 venue overall in the U.S. and the No. 11 spot in the world regardless of size.
Pollstar also released its year-end Top 100 Tours chart by worldwide ticket sales. In 2021, Mohegan Sun Arena hosted two tours in the top five (No. 1 Harry Styles, No. 4 Dave Matthews Band) and three additional tours in the top 30 (No. 23 Dan + Shay, No. 27 Machine Gun Kelly, No. 30 Sebastian Maniscalco). International superstar Harry Styles made his solo debut at Mohegan Sun Arena for two sold-out shows in October as part of Mohegan Sun’s 25th Anniversary celebration.
With one of the most successful years in its history, Mohegan Sun Arena drew more than 450,000 people in 2021, making it the top casino venue in the world.
“This is a major team win for Mohegan Sun and all the team members who work so hard to earn the No. 1 ranking and will live on as a milestone for many years to come,” said Tom Cantone, President of Sports and Entertainment at Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment. “Mohegan Sun Arena has consistently ranked among the top venues in the world over the last decade, and it’s an honor to lead and be a part of such a hardworking team we have called ‘The Decade of Excellence.’”
