Honda Center (formerly Arrowhead Pond)
Reflecting state-of-the art design in both form and function, the Honda Center (formerly the Arrowhead Pond) of Anaheim hosts a variety of first-class events each year including concerts, sporting events and family shows. The 650,000 sq. ft. arena is home to the NHL Anaheim Ducks as well as the annual John R. Wooden Classic and Fight Night at the Pond. It also has the flexibility to be used for various family events, including the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus and Harlem Globetrotters. The venue hosts top concerts annually, and is ranked third in the world by Billboard magazine (2005), as one of the premier entertainment venues in the United States.
Syska Hennessy Group designed the highly technical building systems for this facility. Teamed with HOK Sport, the Syska team designed this state-of the art arena as a premier entertainment and sports venue for the City of Anaheim. The arena has three concourse levels and can seat 17,200 hockey fans, 18,000 basketball fans and 19,200 concert patrons. In addition there are 84 luxury suites and 1,716 club seats.
