Hey there sports fans! Tony back again to give you an update on some of the exciting renovations taking place at the USF Sun Dome. After $35.6 million in renovations, the building is set to reopen next month and host it's first event in May with the university's commencement ceremonies.
The overhaul features the entire inside of the building rebuilt from scratch! These upgrades include a concourse that did not exist in the old Sun Dome, permanent bleachers in the second level, concession stands, bathrooms, dress rooms, green rooms, a new LED scoreboard, and much more!
The Arena will serve as a strategic asset and iconic focal point of the University in engaging the Tampa Bay community to the Tampa campus through a mix of hosting internal and external events. The USF men's and women's basketball home-game schedules, typically 16 home games per each program for a total of 32 games per year, will have priority in scheduling over other events.
