Located in downtown Salt Lake City and the homecourt of the NBA Utah Jazz. The building originally opened as the Delta Center on Oct. 7, 1991. With seating capacity of about 20,000, the facility is the largest, most high-tech arena within a five-state radius and was built faster than any other arena at the time of its construction in 15 months and 24 days. The basketball court is named in honor of Larry H. Miller who spearheaded the construction of the building.
The building has played host to the 1993 NBA All-Star Weekend, two NBA Finals, the NCAA men’s basketball tournament, the 1999 U.S. Figure Skating Championships, as well as figure skating and short track speed skating events at the 2002 Olympic Winter Games. The arena has featured some of the biggest names in the music world with Garth Brooks, U2, Taylor Swift and The Rolling Stones among the largest concert draws in the arena’s history. Family-friendly events such as Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, Disney on Ice and Days of ’47 Rodeo also make annual appearances. The arena hosts about 1.8 million guests and more than 100 sports and entertainment events each year.
In the last five years, about $25 million has been injected into arena improvements. With an emphasis on enhancing the fan experience, upgrades have included an improved public address system, enlarged concourse entries with retail and food offerings, digital direction and concessions signage, the addition of the Legends Club, Fanzz stores and the expansion of the main team store, and numerous energy efficiency projects. The most significant improvement was a $15 million investment prior to the 2013-14 season for the installation of a new high definition video display system and other building infrastructure.
