About the Amway Center
Opened in the fall of 2010, The Amway Center was designed to reflect the character of the Central Florida community, meet the goals of the users and build on the legacy of sports and entertainment in Orlando. The Amway Center was named the sports facility of the year by Street & Smith’s SportsBusiness Journal and SportsBusiness Daily at the prestigious Sports Business Awards in New York City, which annually recognizes excellence and outstanding achievement in the business of sports. The Amway Center’s exterior features a modern blend of glass and metal materials, along with ever-changing graphics via a monumental wall along one façade. A 180-foot tall tower serves as a beacon amid the downtown skyline. At 875,000 square feet, the new arena is almost triple the size of the old Amway Arena (367,000 square feet). The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certified building features a sustainable, environmentally friendly design and unmatched technology, featuring 1,100 digital monitors, the tallest high-definition video board in an NBA venue and multiple premium amenities available to all patrons in the building. "To have the Amway Center recognized as the “Sports Facility of the Year” is a testament to the vision, tireless support and triumphant spirit of the Orlando community,” said Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer. “Receiving this coveted award is not only incredibly gratifying but further proof that teamwork makes it all possible."
