Coliseum Authority members met with a group at James Brown Arena yesterday (9/17) and shared the concept designs for a new James Brown Arena & Augusta Entertainment Complex. The models show a conjoined structure, housing both the Arena and the Bell Auditorium.

The project will cost over $220 million dollars and should be completed by September 2024.

Our news partner, WJBF News Channel 6, has a full gallery of photos of the new arena design here.
