Venue Information

The Greensboro Coliseum complex is an indoor arena in Greensboro, North Carolina. The arena was the home of the Carolina Hurricanes from 1997-1999 and the long-time home of the ACC Men's Basketball tournament (which has begun to rotate arenas in recent years) and hosted the 1974 NCAA Men's Final Four. Originally built in 1959 as War Memorial Coliseum, it was renamed simply the Greensboro Coliseum in the late 1960s.

As originally built, it seated 9,200, one of the largest arenas in the South. Expansions over the years brought capacity to 15,000. The arena was heavily renovated in 1993. Today, the arena seats 21,273 for ice hockey, and close to 23,500 for basketball. In addition to the main arena, it also has a 180,000 square foot special events center, a pavilion, and the 2,300-seat War Memorial Auditorium.

In 2005, the Coliseum was expected to house as many as 500 New Orleans evacuees following the overflow of evacuees from Raleigh. However, the evacuees didn't come as expected, which cost the city and surrounding areas an unknown amount of money.
