Venue History

The Delta Center began operation in October 1991. Since that time, it has been the home arena for the Utah Jazz and the Utah Starzz. It is the largest arena within a five-state radius, including Utah, Nevada, Idaho, Wyoming, and Colorado. It's seating capacity is up to 20,400 people. In August 1999, a tornado hit the facility directly, causing and estimated $5 million in damage, but the arena was unharmed structurally.
