McCamish Pavilion History

The McCamish Pavilion in Atlanta, Georgia is one of the most exciting sports venues in the country. It began its life as the Alexander Memorial Coliseum in the late 1950s. It was located on the Northeast end of the Georgia Tech campus, and was named for former Georgia Tech football coach William A. Alexander. The stadium was ahead of its time when it was built in the 1950s. Its domed roof required no support pillars on the inside of the structure. This meant fans wouldn't have to contend with large poles blocking their view of the action. The arena originally held almost 7,000 cheering fans, but through several renovations, the capacity grew to 8,600. Not only is this one-of-a-kind facility home to the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets men and women's basketball teams, but it also once housed the Atlanta Hawks of the NBA. The events center has had a long and storied history, which has included many NCAA tournaments and a role in the 1996 Summer Olympics. While the Alexander Memorial Coliseum had served the team well, the university decided to begin renovating the legendary stadium. The renovations cost more than $45 million. The McCamish family donated the majority of the money for these improvements, and was honored by a change to the facility's name. The remodeled arena was named the Hank McCamish Pavilion and began hosting Georgia Tech basketball games at the start of the 2011-2012 season.
