VSE's collection of sports and entertainment venues were designed to be fan-first. From a roof system built to create pure noise to the installation of the acoustical cloud -- one of the most innovative and flexible arena sound systems in the country -- we deliver fans with a one-of-a-kind experience. Beyond some of the finest sightlines and amenities, the look and feel create an atmosphere that few can match.  


CenturyLink Field


In the heart of Seattle's historic Pioneer Square, the 68,000-seat CenturyLink Field opened in 2002. Home to the NFL's Seattle Seahawks and MLS's Seattle Sounders, CenturyLink Field was designed to show off the Pacific Northwest's scenery and the city's urban vista. The stadium's roof doubles as weather protection for most of the stadium's seats as well as a tool to maximize the sound coming from the field. CenturyLink Field hosts the world's largest acts, including Beyoncé, Metallica, Rolling Stones, Taylor Swift, and U2.

Moda Center


Opened in 1995 on the banks of the Willamette River in downtown Portland, the Moda Center is a versatile arena that has quickly become a city landmark. Home to the NBA’s Portland Trail Blazers and WHL’s Portland Winterhawks, the 20,000-seat Moda Center's design, seating and continued enhancements make it cutting-edge venue. In addition to basketball and hockey, the arena has played host to a wide variety of events such as concerts and other sporting events.

Veterans Memorial Coliseum


The Veterans Memorial Coliseum is a 12,000-seat arena located in downtown Portland that hosts more than 150 events each year and serves as the primary home for the WHL Winterhawks. The arena, which opened in 1960, was the original home of the Portland Trail Blazers until 1995. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Veterans Memorial Coliseum has seen its fare share of memorable moments including the Trail Blazers' NBA Championship in 1977 to concerts from The Beatles and Elvis Presley.      

WAMU Theater


Adjacent to CenturyLink Field in the heart of Seattle’s historic Pioneer Square, Washington Music Theater (WaMu Theater) is one of the most flexible indoor performance spaces in the United States. The theater was acoustically engineered for superior sound quality that makes for an exceptional concert experience. 

Theater of the Clouds


Theater of the Clouds is the Moda Center’s theater configuration, specially constructed to include curtains and a one-of-a-kind acoustic cloud, in order to transform the large arena into an intimate setting for shows of 3,000 to 6,500 guests. The Theater of the Clouds has hosted concerts, theatrical performances, and speakers such as Malala Yousafzai and Al Gore.

The Rose Quarter


The Rose Quarter in Portland includes the 20,000-seat Moda Center, 12,000-seat Veterans Memorial Coliseum, 6,500-seat Theater of the Clouds, 40,000-square foot Exhibit Hall and the Rose Quarter Commons.
