Description: The former USF Sun Dome was renamed to the Yuengling Center in June of 2018. In June 2011, the USF Board of Trustees approved a $35.6 million major renovation to the 55,000-square-foot Arena including but not limited to, the complete reconfiguration of the approximately 10,000 seat bowl (to oval bowl seating setting), adding a state-of-the art center hung LED scoreboard, additional concessions and restrooms at the concourse level (by adding a concourse under and throughout the permanent second level seating), modifying and enhancing the southeast and southwest entries, and the restoration of existing exterior concrete amongst other cosmetic improvements.
The project included the creation of a hospitality and viewing club area along the north sideline immediately placed above the lower bowl seating area anticipated for a capacity of 600-900 patrons depending on configuration and event type. Additionally, the project provided for 10 loge boxes with a total capacity of 60 seats to be sold by the USF Athletics Department. The project, which was completed in May 2012, is anticipated to extend the useful life of the Arena for a 30-year time period.
The Arena serves as the exclusive home for all USF men's and women's basketball games, in addition to, women's volleyball matches to be conducted in the adjoining Corral Gymnasium. The Corral Gymnasium has a capacity of 725 seats and 6,700-square feet with the bleachers extended vs. 11,500-square feet with the bleachers retracted.
