St. Charles, MO (August 16, 2019) – The St. Louis Ambush will call the St. Charles Family Arena home for the next three seasons according to a joint announcement made today by the team and the arena. The current Ambush franchise has played all home games at the Family Arena since the inception of the club in 2013. The new agreement runs through the 2021-22 season.

The Family Arena was built in 1999. The versatile facility has hosted sporting events including soccer, football, hockey, basketball, MMA and professional wrestling. Other events at the Family Arena have included concerts, circuses, ice shows, trade shows, political rallies and high school and college commencement ceremonies. Located less than a mile from highways 70 and 364 and just across the Missouri River from St. Louis County, the Family Arena provides a quick and convenient location for fans from a majority of the St. Louis metropolitan area.

Since the Ambush first called the Family Arena home in 2013, the building has seen a number of updates including new video boards, ribbon boards, upgrades to the sound system, and new interior LED lighting. The Family Arena is also transitioning ticket services, with Ticketmaster in place for the 2019-20 Ambush season. A new feature for the new season will be mobile/electronic ticketing which will eliminate waiting at the will call windows. 

Sandy Femmer, Family Arena General Manager said, “Since their return in 2013, the St. Louis Ambush has been a linchpin of The Family Arena’s schedule. We’re excited and honored to have them extend our partnership through 2022 and we look forward to working with them for many years to come.”

Ambush CEO Shelly Clark was equally pleased with the new lease saying, “The Ambush have spent our previous six seasons at the Family Arena. Through that time, we’ve seen a steady progression of improvements and updates to the facility. Their new partnership with Ticketmaster will continue to improve the service that we are able to offer fans attending our games. We have the support of the arena staff both behind the scenes and from the stands.  We continue to work together to be able to provide affordable family entertainment that the whole community can rally behind. I couldn’t be more happy and excited to continue our partnership with them.”

Ambush season tickets are now on sale for their 2019-20 season, which kicks off in November. All home games are played at the Family Arena in St. Charles. Keep up to date with all Ambush news by following the team on their official website, and on Facebook and Twitter.
