Save Mart Center is located on the campus of California State University, Fresno. It officially opened in the fall of 2003, becoming the home of the Fresno State Bulldogs men's and women's basketball teams. The venue is also where the Fresno State women's volleyball and wrestling teams hold their home matches. For five years in the 2000s, Save Mart Center was the home venue for the Fresno Falcons ice hockey team. The arena gets its name from Save Mart Supermarkets, which funded a large portion of the stadium's construction in exchange for naming rights. Pepsi Bottling Group provided a significant amount of funding as well. Approximately 15,500 fans can fit in the venue during basketball games. About a thousand more can be accommodated during concerts, and about a thousand less can be accommodated during hockey games. Purchase your Save Mart Center event tickets at StubHub.
