TOWSON, Md. - Towson University is launching its www.TigerArena.com website today that will chronicle the state-of-the-art, high-tech venue's construction history from its May, 2011 groundbreaking through its Spring, 2013 opening.
"It's with great enthusiasm that we officially announce our Tiger Arena project," says President Robert Caret. "Towson is an athletics program on the rise and we are looking forward to the date 932 days from now when we are able to showcase this new jewel on our beautiful campus to the Greater Baltimore Community."
The web site will provide updates on the 5,000-seat arena's construction progress and include information for branding opportunities, corporate sponsorships plus the purchase of private suites and club level seating.
"As we move our athletics program forward it is critical that we focus on developing competitive differentials that will serve our University well for decades to come" says Director of Athletics Mike Waddell. "Tiger Arena will be an intimate setting and a true home court advantage for our teams as they compete for the glory of the Black and Gold. I am thankful to Dr. Caret, our State and campus leaders, and countless others who have worked hard to green light this project."
Tiger Arena is the working name for the arena during construction, and will change prior to the grand opening per naming rights opportunities. The venue will feature approximately five (5) premium mezzanine level private suites, approximately 340 premium loge club seats around the top of the lower bowl, and 120 courtside seats.
Additional amenities for the future home of Towson University Basketball, Gymnastics and Volleyball include a 1500 sq. ft. hospitality room, a 680 sq. ft. multipurpose room on the mezzanine and an 800 sq. ft. Tiger Hall of Fame Room on the concourse level. A new state of the art multimedia studio will also be constructed that will be the nerve center of all TIGERVISION operations for both the Arena and Johnny Unitas® Stadium.
