Top Three Arenas

With the global pandemic of COVID19 over, spectators have returned in force to sporting events. Professional leagues such as the NBA and the NFL were looking forward to the moment when their stands could be filled with fans.

We all know that going to an NBA game is more than just going to watch a basketball game. The spectacle, the shopping inside the stadium and the gastronomic offer are sometimes almost more important than the game itself.

For this reason, the arenas of all NBA teams have undergone massive renovations and improvements in recent years. Here are some of the best arenas today:

1 Madison Square Garden

The most iconic and most visited. It is the home of the New York Knicks. Being located in the downtown area of the Big Apple it has made it one of the most famous venues in the city.

Despite the fact that the team has not been one of the best in the competition for years, this stadium (one of the oldest in the NBA) with a capacity of 20,000 people is a true icon in the competition. Visited by many of the millions of tourists who visit New York during the year, it has become a must in the city.

2 Barclays Center

Also in New York´s downtown, this stadium has become one of the most visited in the recent years. The reasons for this are: a brand new stadium with all the details and a team full of superstars of the league. The Brooklyn Nets moved into this building in 2012 and since then it has been one of the leaders in the competition in terms of occupancy year after year. You can buy tickets for Nets here.

3 Chase Center

The NBA’s most modern arena could belong to no other franchise than the one that has revolutionised the game in recent years. The San Francisco Warriors played for years in the old Oracle Arena but to establish themselves as one of the league’s top franchises they needed a better building to match their prestige.

The arena features state-of-the-art technology and a capacity of 18,000 spectators. The investment was $500 million but recent studies indicate that annual revenues will easily exceed that figure.

The Delta Center makes the Warriors the second highest grossing American sports franchise in terms of revenue from its arena, behind only America’s NFL team, the Dallas Cowboys.

Only the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys will earn more from their stadium than the Warriors in the coming years. A dream place in which to watch an NBA game, but it should be noted that the tickets are also usually the most expensive in the competition.

In addition to these stadiums, legendary venues such as the United Center in Chicago or the Staples Center in Los Angeles are still places of pilgrimage for NBA fans.
