NAMPA, Idaho (CelebrityAccess) — The City of Nampa has tapped Spectra By Comcast Spectacor as the new venue management company for the Ford Idaho Center and Ford Idaho Horse Park.
The five-year deal will see Spectra overseeing the City-owned complex, which features an 11,000-seat amphitheater, a 12,000-seat arena, and a 2,000-seat multipurpose horse park. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed. The complex was formerly managed by SMG.
