The new Auburn Arena provided a much needed, updated facility for men’s and women’s basketball, women’s gymnastics and the Lovelace Athletic Museum. Incorporated into the arena are two full size practice courts adjoined by a new weight room. Administrative areas overlook the practice courts. Tailgating suites may be used for both basketball and football games. The suites open up facing Jordan Hare Stadium and provide a small outdoor patio and grill space. While the new arena is smaller than its predecessor, all patrons are provided an incredible view of the court, regardless of their seat location.
