Ball State University Worthen ArenaMuncie, Indiana
This 12,000-seat, multipurpose facility replaces the 6,600-seat Irving Gymnasium as the home for men’s and women’s varsity basketball and provides a much needed venue for commencements, concerts and community events.
The first nine rows of seating are located on retractable platforms, which create an intimate arrangement. When these platforms are retracted, the 19,000-square-foot floor can be configured to hold three basketball cross courts and a variety of events requiring floor seating.
The arena is designed for major media use and features fixed camera positions, high-intensity illumination, reserved dock space for production trucks, permanent cable runs and accessible up-link locations.
