Prudential Center is home to the NHL New Jersey Devils and Seton Hall men’s basketball teams along with a variety of events including indoor soccer. Set in a restricted urban environment, construction began in the fall of 2005 and was completed with a grand opening in October of 2007. The facility features a long-span roof with more than 200,000 pounds of rigging capacity, 76 luxury suites and two large concourse levels. Visitors are greeted by two prominent glass cylinder structures more than 115 feet tall. An auxiliary practice facility and an office building supplement the project.
The Prudential Center is the key component of Newark’s downtown redevelopment plan devised to revitalize the area.
