ARIZONA STADIUM: Arizona Wildcats (NCAA) (1929-present)

Arizona Stadium is an outdoor football stadium on the campus of the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona. It is the home field of the Arizona Wildcats of the Pacific-10 Conference, and its current seating capacity is 57,803.

Located in central Tucson, the stadium has been home to Wildcat football since 1928. Initially, stadium capacity was just 7,000, with seating located on the stadium's west side. Arizona's first game at the facility was October 12, 1929 when the Wildcats defeated Caltech 35-0. Capacity was raised to 10,000 in 1938 when seats were constructed on the east side of the stadium. Additional seating was added to both end zones in 1947. This added an additional 4,000 seats.

In 1950, a horseshoe configuration was constructed around the south end zone resulting in the addition of almost 8,700 seats. A multi-level press box and 10,000 seats were added to the west grandstand in 1965. The east side of the stadium received a second tier, consisting of 17,000 seats, in 1976, as the Wildcats prepared to leave the WAC for the Pac-8 in 1978.

McKALE CENTER: McKale Center is home to the University of Arizona Wildcats basketball team. The arena opened in February 1973 and has a capacity of 14,545 spectators.

Following the Arizona State University game on February 26, 2000, the University of Arizona athletic department honored head coach Lute Olson with a ceremony to name the McKale Center floor, "Lute Olson Court". Then, during a memorial service in January 2001 for Olson's late wife, Bobbi, it was renamed, "Lute and Bobbi Olson Court" in recognition of the couple's impact on the university and the city of Tucson.
