About PNC Arena
The PNC Arena remains dedicated to furthering the area’s growing popularity by providing the best possible sports and entertainment experience in the Southeast.
The PNC Arena is among the newest sports and entertainment facilities in the United States. The NHL recognized Wake County and the Raleigh area as a great opportunity for a NHL team. Based at the PNC Arena, the NHL’s Carolina Hurricanes are the 2006 Stanley Cup Champions. The PNC Arena also hosts NC State University’s mens basketball.
The PNC Arena provides the area with a wide variety of other events as well. On an annual basis, the PNC Arena welcomes over 1.2 million guests and plays host to more than 140 events. The PNC Arena has continually offered Raleigh, the Triangle, and the Southeast an abundance of sports, concerts, and events year after year. A 2004 study by the accounting firm Ernst & Young estimates the arena’s economic impact to be about $170 million a year.
The $158 million PNC Arena encompasses approximately 700,000 square feet and boasts a 140-acre tract adjacent to Carter Finley Stadium and the North Carolina State Fairgrounds. Four different seating levels provide 18,176 seats for hockey, 19,722 for basketball, 19,500 for center-stage concerts, and 18,900 for endstage 360 performances.
The Center’s amenities include over 8,000 designated parking spaces, 18 concession stands, 37 public restrooms, and escalators and elevators throughout the building.

In part due to a grant from the State of North Carolina, the Centennial Authority owns the PNC Arena building and the surrounding 80 acres, while the facility itself is operated by the Carolina Hurricanes/Gale Force Sports & Entertainment.
With construction by Hensel Phelps Construction, overseen by McDevitt Street Bovis, Inc. and architects Odell, the PNC Arena yields a height of 108½ feet, a width of 495 feet, and a length of 635 feet.
