WHY CAMPAIGN OF CHAMPIONS


"A World-Class University Deserves A Best-In-Class Facility."


While Pauley Pavilion's mystique remains as strong as ever, it is clear that the arena needs significant transformation to remain a world class venue.

  • Infrastructure is deteriorating
  • Arena navigation is flawed
  • Athletic facilities are limited and inferior
  • Seating is sub-standard
  • Aisle way step system is dangerous
  • Uncentered court resulting in seats being too far from court
  • Number and quality of restrooms and concessions are insufficient
  • Technology is antiquated
