Vulcan Sports and Entertainment (VSE) manages the premier sports and entertainment platform in the Pacific Northwest
Established in 2007, VSE provides strategic oversight for Paul Allen’s professional sports franchises – the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks, the NBA’s Portland Trail Blazers – and manages CenturyLink Field, WaMu Theater and CenturyLink Field Event Center, the Moda Center and Veterans Memorial Coliseum.
Owned by Vulcan Chairman Paul Allen since 1997, this Seattle NFL team is a source of community pride. Seahawks fans – the 12s – are known as some of the loudest in the league.
Since basketball fan Paul Allen acquired Portland’s NBA team in 1988, the Trail Blazers have been in the playoffs more than 20 times, an achievement few NBA teams have surpassed.
Built in partnership with the state of Washington, CenturyLink Field is home to the Seahawks and the Sounders, but also a premier live music and entertainment venue.
Home to the Trail Blazers and the WHL's Portland Winterhawks, the Moda Center and Rose Quarter in Portland, Ore., is a collection of state-of-the-art sports and entertainment venues.
Seattle's WaMu Theater is one of the most flexible indoor performance spaces in the U.S. The space was acoustically engineered for superior sound quality that can accommodate all types of concerts and special events.
Paul G. Allen's Vulcan Sports and Entertainment group has had a remarkably successful year in professional sports.
