Named in honor of Dr. F.C. “Phog” Allen, the Jayhawks’ head coach for 19 years, Allen Fieldhouse is labeled as one of the best places in America to watch a basketball game.
With a capacity of 16,300, Allen Fieldhouse is the second-largest basketball arena in the Big 12, and the largest in the state of Kansas.
Over 16,000 fans came out to support the Jayhawks in the 2009 WNIT title game.

The Booth Family Hall of Athletics is a 26,000-square-foot museum adjacent to the east side of Allen Fieldhouse. The facility opened in January 2006 and is open year-round, allowing Jayhawk fans everywhere to experience the history and tradition of Kansas.
