Still a quality basketball arena
Jan 2020
Even though Pitt might be struggling more, this is still a great arena for basketball. It is designed well for easy in/out and the seats even from the top of the arena provide a great view. The scoreboards make it easy to stay up to date on stats as well. Great to take in Pitt basketball.

A Beautiful Facility
Dec 2019
This is a 12,000+ seat arena, home of the University of Pittsburgh's mens and women's basketball teams. Other events, e.g., concerts and the University Commencement are also held here.

We were there for the first round of the 2019 Division I Women's Volleyball Tournament.

This is a beautiful facility!

Volleyball game
Nov 2019 • Family
We brought our 8 year old twin daughters here to watch Pitt women’s volleyball- they’re #2 in the country!! It was great! We parked in the Presby parking garage and had a short walk to the stadium. We bought tickets there; I’d recommend buying online to avoid waiting in line. It was $32 for our family of 4 and open seating. Our girls made it on the Jumbotron twice and caught a tshirt! They were thrilled. Fun way to spend the evening without breaking the bank.

Great performance from a R&B band together for about 50 years outta Philly. Clean. Better be in shape to walk up that hill to get there, or you'll be outta breath.

Poor, and I mean Poor, sound system. Muddy. Don't know what the problem was, but it was not worthy of the performance from Maze, Freddie Jackson, The Whispers or Tom Brown.

An excellent place to watch some of the best basketball western pa has to offer. Seats are very comfortable and the overall building is very modern.

Chris Tomlin Concert

We attended a concert at the Center with some friends.. The staff was very friendly and eager to assist us in finding our seating zones etc. The restrooms were clean and plentiful. Make plans ahead of time where you will be parking and be prepared to walk up hills and steps. Pittsburgh is not flat! I parked at a parking garage around the corner..

WPIAL Basketball Finals
Mar 2018 • Family
We visited the Petersen Events Center for one of the WPIAL Final Basketball games. It’s a very nice, comfortable and clean facility. Great venue to see a game. The negatives were lack of signs directing you to the parking lot. We tried a few lots that were hospital only parking before we found the events lot behind the facility. Also when they played the National Anthem there seemed to be no flag in the facility which is very strange.
