A multipurpose sports and entertainment arena located in Orlando, Florida, the Amway Center serves primarily as the home to the National Basketball Association’s Orlando Magic.
It’s a big part of what’s called the Downtown Orlando Master Plan 3. A plan which will make renovations to both the Citrus Bowl and the performing arts center.
In addition to being the home of the Orlando Magic it’s also the home field for the Arena League’s Orlando Predators, and the Orlando Solar Bears from the ECHL.
The Magic have a unique deal with the city over the stadium in that they receive all proceeds from Orlando Magic ticket sales and the city collects the revenue from all other events held at the stadium.
It fits 18,846 fans for Magic games with 1,428 club seats, 28 Presidential Suites and 68 Loge Boxes.
• Capacity: 18,846
