After a two year renovation and expansion of Pauley Pavilion – which included the addition of a new concourse, 1,000 extra seats, an underground facility with team spaces, new concessions and expanded bathrooms – NBBJ has handed over the keys to UCLA Athletics. The project was completed under budget and opens ahead of the first home game of the season versus Indiana State University of November 9.
Pauley is one of the most iconic sports venues in the world. The facility played host to legendary coach John Wooden during the 1960s and is the current home of the UCLA Bruins men's basketball team, which holds a record 11 NCAA Championship titles. The facility accommodates dozen of major events throughout the year, including basketball games, concerts, graduation ceremonies and community events.
