The Kumho Fan Zone opened on AmericanAirlines Arena’s 300 level last week during the team’s game against the New York Knicks. A gaming wall includes four 60-inch HD-TVs, Sony Playstation and game software. Fans can compete with one another and participate in contests and giveaways. Kumho will also offer special snack deals at concession stands.
