Seton Hall Men\'s Hoops Joins Prudential Center
The Prudential Center will seat 17,625 people for hockey games, 18,500 for basketball games, and 19,500 for concerts.


NEWARK, NJ, May 23, 2007 –Devils Arena Entertainment president and chairman Jeffrey Vanderbeek and AEG New York/New Jersey president Nick Sakiewicz announced today that Seton Hall University will play its home men’s basketball games at Prudential Center in Newark, NJ beginning this fall.  A member of the BIG EAST Conference, Seton Hall will take on some of the top teams in the country including rivals Connecticut, Georgetown, St. John’s and Rutgers.

“We are thrilled to welcome Seton Hall University and their fans to Prudential Center,” said Vanderbeek.  “This world-class facility is going to be an exciting place to watch BIG EAST basketball, and we are glad to be the new home of the Pirates.”

 
 

The addition of Seton Hall men’s basketball marks yet another significant acquisition for Prudential Center, the first major sports and entertainment venue to open in the nation’s top media market in over 25 years.  The facility will be the new home of the National Hockey League’s New Jersey Devils, as well as a new Major Indoor Soccer League franchise.  Earlier this month, AEG Live announced that New Jersey’s Bon Jovi will open the venue with a concert on October 26.

 

“The Seton Hall basketball team adds yet another layer to what will be one of the nation’s finest sports and entertainment venues,” said AEG’s Sakiewicz. “The Devils, Bon Jovi, and now BIG EAST basketball -- it’s all adding up to a tremendous selection of events for the local community and region.”

 

"Since the 1930’s with our first branch campus downtown, Seton Hall has 'grown up' with Newark, has become a friend and partner with Newark – and has become a vital part of the city with our nationally recognized Law School,” said Seton Hall University president Monsignor Robert Sheeran.  “And there is much more to come with Seton Hall Basketball at the Prudential Center."

 

Prudential Center, set to open in October 2007, will feature 76 luxury suites, 2,330 club seats, 750 television monitors, a 4,800 square-foot state-of-the-art exterior LED screen, a gourmet restaurant overlooking the event floor and an array of fan amenities and conveniences, including the richly appointed Fire and Ice Lounges for premium seat holders.  Prudential Center will seat 17,625 people for hockey games, 18,500 for basketball games, and 19,500 for concerts.
