Bryce Jordan Center History

Opened in 1996, the Bryce Jordan Center has been home to the Penn State Nittany Lions basketball teams ever since. The Nittany Lions play in one of the toughest college basketball conferences in the country, the Big Ten, meaning that each year they play home games at this venue against some of the most highly ranked teams in the country. The venue also is home to the commencement ceremonies at Penn State and has also hosted the women's NCAA Tournament, the PIAA state high school basketball championships, WWE events like RAW, and more. Additionally, big time musical acts like Pearl Jam, Tina Turner, Britney Spears, Backstreet Boys, Aerosmith and more have performed at Bryce Jordan Center


Bryce Jordan Center Events

A state of the art basketball venue, Bryce Jordan Center is best known as the home of the Penn State Nittany Lions basketball team. The Nittany Lions hoopsters hit the court at this arena each and every season to do battle with some of the best teams in the BCAA basketball ranks. But it's not all about basketball at this arena. There are plenty of events set to take place at the Bryce Jordan Center before the hoops season tips off this fall. Foster the People is set to perform at this venue on September 5th for what is sure to be a great back-to-school show. Two days later WWE live will arrive to showcase some of the best wrestlers in sports entertainment. There are other spectacles due to hit the stage at this venue, so take a look at the full schedule.


University Park, Pennsylvania

University Park is the name of the Penn State campus and also is a zip code but is not technically a community like nearby College Township, Pennsylvania. The area is home to Beaver Stadium, home of the Penn State football team, which is the second largest stadium in the western hemisphere, Bryce Jordan Center, Eisenhower Auditorium, The Hub, Medlar Field, Penn State Creamery, the Palmer Museum of Art, Old Main, and more. There is plenty going on around the Penn State campus whether you are looking for sports, fine arts, or anything in between.


Bryce Jordan Center Seating Layout

Bryce Jordan Center seats just over 15,000 fans for basketball games and more than 16,000 for the big concerts it holds. Featuring state of the art LED displays as well as sound systems and seats, there is hardly a better place in the country to see a college basketball game, especially when it is filled to the rafters with loyal Penn State fans cheering on the team during yet another important Big Ten match up. If you've never been out to this venue to see the Nittany Lions in action, then now is the time to change that. If you're not into sports, check out the schedule to some of the other great events that are coming to the Bryce Jordan Center.
