Izod Center History

The Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey, is one of the most popular sports arenas in that part of the country, and has played host to some of the biggest games in sports history. It is part of the Meadowlands Sports Complex in New Jersey, and can hold more than 20,000 cheering fans. In years past, the events center has been home to the New Jersey Nets of the NBA, the New Jersey Devils of the NHL, as well as NCAA basketball games for Seton Hall. It now serves as the site for the Fordham Rams basketball team's home games. Construction on the arena began in 1977 and cost about $65 million to build. It was originally called Brendan Byrne Arena after the sitting New Jersey governor, who was part of the group trying to bring an NHL team to the state. The center opened with a bang in 1981, with legendary rock musician Bruce Springsteen performing six concerts. Later that year, the New Jersey Nets relocated to the arena. The NBA All-Star Game was also took place at the arena that year. Soon, the New Jersey Devils relocated from Colorado and found a home at the newly-constructed arena. Since then, the team has been the home of several sports franchises including the New York Cosmos, the Seton Hall Pirates and the New Jersey Storm. The Izod Center has been the site of the Final Four, NBA Championship games, NBA Finals and the Stanley Cup Finals. They have also played host to big stars like The Rolling Stones, the Dave Matthews Band and Kiss.
