The abandoned Evans-Fintube property north of downtown is the preferred site for USA BMX’s national arena and headquarters, City of Tulsa and USA BMX officials announced in July.
Evans-Fintube, which manufactured steel, was built in 1911 and sits on approximately 22 acres. It was once the largest manufacturing facility in Tulsa.
B.A. Anderson, CEO of USA BMX, said in a July 5 press release that his team is working through the logistics required to solidify the location.
The City expects more than 100,000 visitors to attend over 100 local, state and national BMX events in Tulsa in the arena’s first five years, including the Olympic trials in 2020. The events are expected to help the City generate nearly $11 million in that timeframe.
