Reminder: Rupp Arena Surplus Auction is tomorrow

Tomorrow’s your chance to own a piece of Rupp Arena. Starting at 10 a.m., the Lexington Center Corporation is auctioning off surplus items from Rupp and the Lexington Center, including pieces of the original Rupp Arena court, which was in place from 1976-2000. Other items include…

  • Concourse signs
  • Light fixtures
  • Desks & cabinets
  • Concession equipment (food warmers, kiosks, etc.)
  • Tables & chairs
  • Display cases
  • Large rolling carts,
  • Peg boards
  • Snow salt dispenser
  • Various hardware
  • 20-foot Christmas tree (from The Shops)

Herald-Leader photographer Charles Bertram went out to Rupp to check out some of the items up for grabs and tweeted these photos:

The auction will take place behind Rupp Arena beneath the Jefferson Street Bridge. All items are sold as is.

The items are being cleared out to make way for the ongoing renovations at Rupp, which you can read more about here. If all goes according to plan, here’s what it will look like in 2021:
