The Pepsi Center Denver CO Proves To Be A Multi-Use Facility
The Pepsi Center Denver CO was opened in Colorado's biggest city in 1999 and has been used as a popular venue for sports and entertainment since then. The building is used as the home arena by the NBA's Denver Nuggets basketball team, the NLL Colorado Mammoth lacrosse club, and the NHL's Colorado Avalanche ice hockey franchise. Numerous concerts are also held each year in the building which is named after its major corporate sponsor.
The Pepsi Center is located on Chopper Circle near Speer Boulevard, which is one of the city's major streets. There's an interstate exit close to it, as well as a light rail station next to the arena. This makes it quite accessible for local residents and visitors to the city.
Construction began on the facility in late 1997, and it was completed in slightly less than two years at a cost of about $160 million. The first event held there was a concert by Canadian singer Celine Dion. The complex also contains a restaurant and practice facility for basketball. The restaurant can also be accessed from outside of the facility.
The capacity for the arena, which is owned and operated by Kroenke Sports Enterprises, is 19,155 for basketball, 18,007 for hockey and lacrosse, 17,417 for arena football, and over 20,000 for concerts. However, those numbers can go up as there are also several luxury suites in the building.
The Pepsi Center Denver CO hosted the NHL All-Star Game in 2001 and the NBA All-Star Game in 2005. It also hosted the city's Grand Prix auto race in its parking lot between 2002 and 2006 and the NCAA Men's Frozen Four tournament in 2008, as well as many other sports and entertainment events. It was also used as the location of the Democratic National Convention in 2008 and was used as a filming location for the 1997 comedy movie Blades of Glory, starring Jon Heder and Will Ferrell.
