Suites & Arena Overview
PNC Arena, located in Raleigh, North Carolina, is home to the Carolina Hurricanes of the National Hockey League (NHL) and the North Carolina State University Division I men’s basketball team. When not in use by one of these programs, the arena frequently serves as a concert venue.
The facility is owned by the Centennial Authority and managed by Gale Force Sports and Entertainment.
PNC Financial Services Group, Inc. is the title sponsor with venue naming rights. Notable events hosted at PNC Arena include the first and second rounds of the 2004, 2008, and 2014 men's NCAA basketball tournaments, the 2011 NHL All-Star Game, and WWE Smackdown. Notable artists to perform at PNC Arena include Bruce Springsteen, Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake, Elton John, George Strait, and Bon Jovi.
The late North Carolina State men’s basketball head coach Jim Valvano had a hand in designing some of the seating areas in PNC Arena, advising that student seats should ring the court to recreate the atmosphere of Reynolds Coliseum (“The Old Barn”) – located on the North Carolina State campus.
