Alaska Airlines Arena at Hec Edmundson Pavilion

Alaska Airlines Arena at Hec Edmundson Pavilion is the primary home for the Husky men's and women's basketball teams, volleyball team and gymnastics squad. The 2008-09 season marks the 83rd season of service for the multi-purpose facility. The 2000-01 season featured the re-opening of the Arena after a major, 16-month long, top-to-bottom overhaul. Originally completed in 1927, the arena underwent a $40 million, 19-month renovation between March 1999 and November 2000 to reconfigure its interior. The pavilion's name was also renovated. The building was called Bank of America Arena at Hec Edmundson Pavilion as a result of a $9.1 million payment from Bank of America for naming rights and a 10-year corporate partnership.[1] The building is now known as Alaska Airlines Arena at Hec Edmundson Pavilion.
