Ford Center was constructed to replace Roberts Municipal Stadium with a cost of about 7.5 million. In December 2009, the demolition started after the council of Evansville City approved. As part of a ten year contract deal that cost .2 million, the Tri-State Ford Dealers got the naming rights for the arena.
