Home of the Tigers Auburn Arena The Auburn University Board of Trustees approved the building of the new $92.5 million Auburn Arena and Practice Facility on June 29, 2007. The Auburn Arena has a capacity of 9,121. It includes more than 29,000 square feet of student-athlete space, a two-court practice facility, coaches’ offices, the Auburn University Athletic Ticket Office, an AU Team Store, the relocated Lovelace Museum and Hall of Honor, two food courts and many other amenities. Designed by 360 Architecture out of Kansas City, Mo., the 243,792 square foot facility is located northwest of Beard-Eaves-Memorial Coliseum off Heisman Drive, across the street from the new Student Recreation and Wellness Center. The Auburn Arena is an important recruiting tool for the Auburn men’s and women’s basketball teams. It features student-athlete facilities such as men’s and women’s locker room suites with sports medicine facilities, lounges and team meeting rooms. In addition to the two-court practice facility that allows the men’s and women’s teams to practice simultaneously, a strength and conditioning center is located adjacent to the practice courts with sliding doors, allowing a seamless flow from weight training to practice.

When it comes to seating in Auburn Arena, fans are right on top of the action. The arena features chair back seats along with bleacher seating for students. It also offers sight lines that move fans close to the court. The furthest seat is 43 feet in elevation from court-side with two-thirds of the seats in the facility being less than 27 feet in elevation from court-side. In addition, the arena features 12 court-level luxury suites that open to the outside of the arena for multiple entertaining opportunities throughout the year. Loge Box seating is also available as well as on-site food preparation. The scoreboard features a high-definition video board with full message/ information center technology. Students enjoy a private entrance, a private court-side commons and food court. The facility also serves as more than a sports complex. With more than 12,000 square feet of banquet/entertainment space, its design affords ready adaptation into a site for concerts and other cultural events, convocations and various community gatherings.

A Postseason Home In the facility’s short history, Auburn Arena has already played host to three postseason events. It was a host site for NCAA Tournament First and Second Rounds in 2011 and was back in use the next year as a site for a 2012 NCAA Gymnastics Regional. Most recently, it served as a host site for Auburn’s four Women’s NIT games during the 2012-13 season.

Coach Flo and her staff led the Tigers to 15 home wins during the 2013-14 season. Both the number of wins and the .789 home winning percentage were the best ever for the Tigers in Auburn Arena.

Auburn Creed I believe that this is a practical world and that I can count only on what I earn. Therefore, I believe in work, hard work. I believe in education, which gives me the knowledge to work wisely and trains my mind and my hands to work skillfully. I believe in honesty and truthfulness, without which I cannot win the respect and confidence of my fellow men. I believe in a sound mind, in a sound body and a spirit that is not afraid, and in clean sports to develop these qualities. I believe in obedience to law because it protects the rights of all. I believe in the human touch, which cultivates sympathy with my fellow men and mutual helpfulness and brings happiness for all. I believe in my Country, because it is a land of freedom and because it is my own home, and that I can best serve that country by “doing justly, loving mercy, and walking humbly with my God.” And because Auburn men and women believe in these things, I believe in Auburn and love it. - George Petrie (1945)

Auburn Alma Mater Composed by Bill Wood ‘42 | Word Revision 1960 On the rolling plains of Dixie ‘Neath its sun-kissed sky, Proudly stands, our Alma Mater Banners high.

We hail thee, Auburn, and we vow To work for thy just fame, And hold in memory as we do now Thy cherished name.

From thy hallowed halls we’ll part, And bid thee sad adieu; Thy sacred trust we’ll bear with us The ages through.

To thy name we’ll sing thy praise, From hearts that love so true, And pledge to thee our Loyalty the ages through.

Hear thy student voices swelling, Echoes strong and clear, Adding laurels to thy fame Enshrined so dear.

We hail thee, Auburn, and we vow To work for thy just fame, And hold in memory as we do now Thy cherished name.
