The Utah Jazz is celebrating 25 years in their current arena, which is still a great place to take in an NBA game. The stadium is located near two excellent shopping centers, so if you love to shop then, you’ll love your trip to a Jazz game. Both the City Creek Center and the Gateway outdoor mall offer great places to eat and drink before and after the game, and you can’t go wrong stopping at either of them.
Once inside the arena, you’ll find an incredible atmosphere that is enhanced by the hometown fans’ support for their team. The Jazz are the only major professional sports team in Utah, which means that no matter how the team is doing, you’ll usually find a packed house. The fan support here in Salt Lake City has been among the best over the years and has even earned the arena the reputation as one of the most intimidating in the NBA.
Another nice touch inside the stadium is its nod to its Olympic history. The Delta Center hosted figure skating and short-track speed skating during the 2002 Olympics and all around the arena you can find tributes to these events.
