About Ball Arena
Ball Arena, formerly known as the Pepsi Center, is an 18,000+ seat indoor hockey rink, basketball arena, and concert venue located in downtown Denver, Colorado. Opening its doors in 1999, the arena’s inaugural event was a sold-out Celine Dion concert, and has seen some of the world’s biggest names since.
As home to the NBA’s Denver Nuggets, the NHL’s Colorado Avalanche and the NLL's Colorado Mammoth, the arena is mostly known for its basketball, hockey, and lacrosse games. Notably, local hockey heroes the Avalanche recently made history by winning the 2022 Stanley Cup Series at home — making it the team’s third championship.
As an entertainment venue, Ball Arena has a lot to offer. Its 89 luxury suites and 1,900 club seats all offer a premium experience with a great view of the arena floor and all the amenities you’d expect from a world-class venue. There’s also free Wi-Fi for all attendees, an impressive JBL VerTec sound system, as well as a 4K projector setup. What’s more, with its great downtown location, attendees can experience the culture and attractions of the “Mile High City” before and after their event.
An interesting fact about Ball Arena is that it’s one of the few stadiums in the country that has practical facilities for its teams inside the building. For example, the Denver Nuggets have their own full-sized basketball court for training and practice sessions.
