Arena Directions | Arena Seating Map


    The Auburn University Board of Trustees approved the building of the new $92.5 million Auburn Arena and Practice Facility on June 29, 2007. The Auburn Arena has a capacity of 9,600. It includes over 29,000 square feet of student-athlete space, a two-court practice facility, coaches' offices, the Auburn University Athletic Ticket Office, an AU Team Store, the relocated Lovelace Museum, two food courts and many other amenities. Designed by 360 Architecture out of Kansas City, Mo., the 243,792 square foot facility is located northwest of Beard-Eaves-Memorial Coliseum on Roosevelt Drive, across the street from the Student Activities Center parking lot.

    The Auburn Arena is an important recruiting tool for the Auburn men's and women's basketball teams. It features improved student-athlete facilities such as men's and women's locker room suites with sports medicine facilities, lounges and team meeting rooms. In addition to the two-court practice facility that allows the men's and women's teams to practice simultaneously, a strength and conditioning center also adds bonus to the new arena.

    When it comes to seating in the Auburn Arena, fans are closer to the action than ever before. The new arena features chair back seats along with bleacher seating for students. It also offers better sight lines that move fans closer to the court. The furthest seat is 43 feet in elevation from court-side, compared to 60 feet in elevation at Beard-Eaves, with two-thirds of the seats in the new facility being less than 27 feet in elevation from court-side.

    In addition, the arena features 12 court-level luxury suites that open to the outside of the arena for multiple entertaining opportunities throughout the year. Loge Box seating is also available as well as on-site food preparation. The scoreboard features a high-definition video board with full message/information center technology. Students enjoy a private entrance, a private court-side commons and food court.

    The facility also serves as more than a sports complex. With over 12,000 square feet of banquet/entertainment space, its design affords ready adaptation into a site for concerts and other cultural events, convocations and various community gatherings.
