in the country. The facility was originally called the CU Events/Conference Center, but was later renamed after a generous
$5 million gift was given by the Adolph Coors Foundation. The arena was renamed to honor the charitable gift. The Coors Center
has housed the Colorado University men's and women's basketball team since 1979 and the women's volleyball team since 1988,

and various other events and activities.
The facility can seat more than 11,000 fans comfortably and includes three
levels of seating for guests. The largest crowd at the arena—more than 11,300 people—was the men's basketball
game between Colorado University and Kansas. The facility has undergone many renovations over the years, including a $200,000
"floor lift" so that a permanent maple surface could be installed that is more energy efficient and prevents injuries.

has been the site for several playoff games featuring the Buffs basketball team, and it continues to be a venue full of excitement
and non-stop sports action.

college basketball teams, but it has also been the site of many other exciting events including nail-biting regular season
