Description

The Coliseo de Puerto Rico José Miguel Agrelot is the biggest indoor arena in Puerto Rico dedicated to entertainment. It is located at the Golden Mile of San Juan, the island capital. It is usually referred by Puerto Ricans as the Choliseo, which is a portmanteau of the words "Coliseo" and "Cholito", in reference to Don Cholito, one of José Miguel Agrelot's characters and Agrelot's own adopted nickname.

The coliseum opened its doors to the public in September 4, 2004 after a prolonged construction financed by the Government of Puerto Rico. This venue is owned by the Puerto Rico Convention District Authority, a public corporation of Puerto Rico, and managed by SMG. It can accommodate up to 18,500 spectators and can be reached by the Hato Rey Station of the Tren Urbano system.

The arena hosted the first WWE pay-per-view event outside the continental United States, Canada and the United Kingdom when New Year's Revolution was held there in 2005. On May 26, 2011, the arena was ranked 8th on the Top 50 Arena Venues of the world and second of the West Hemisphere in worldwide ticket sales by Pollstar Magazine. As of May 2013, the arena has received over 5 million spectators, hosting more than 600 events with a gross ticket revenue around $200 million.

On September 4, 2014, the Choliseo celebrated its tenth anniversary, including a milestone of over 880 events held since its grand opening, an average of 1.7 events per week.

In the aftermath of Hurricane Maria in September 2017, events at the venue were postponed or canceled and instead is used as warehouse and recollection center by the Government of Puerto Rico to provide food, water and basic necessities to those affected by the deadliest and costliest hurricane in the history of Puerto Rico.
