The official NBA website, describes the home of the Jazz as being only three minutes away from hotels used by the visiting teams and 15 minutes away from Salt Lake National Airport. It is very close to a variety of restaurants, shops, and tourist attractions.
For the first fifteen years of its existence, the arena was known as the Delta Center. When Delta airlines failed to renew their contract with owners, EnergySolutions stepped in and purchased the rights to the name, and more recently, Vivint. The indoor stadium can seat around 22,000 people and provides numerous services, such as catering, meeting rooms, and conference hosting. Originally owned by Harry H. Miller, owner of the team, it now belongs to Jazz Basketball Investors, Inc, the estate of Harry H. Miller.
The arena's most important role is hosting the legendary Utah Jazz, one of the premiere NBA teams in the nation. According to NBA.com, the venue is notoriously difficult for visiting teams and can be considered “a weapon” used by the Jazz against their unfortunate rivals. Just in case visiting teams might be too confident, statues of John Stockton and Karl Malone grace the outside of the arena, reminders of the great Jazz legacy.
During the 2002 Olympics, the arena hosted short track speed skating and figure skating. It has also hosted two NBA finals as well as other sporting events such as rodeos and wrestling. Just about any kind of sporting activity can regularly be found at this location. The arena offers a comprehensive guest guide on it's website that offers information on accessibility, ticketing, maps, and available services. Box office hours are 9am to 5:30 pm Monday through Fridays, and directions to the box office and other vital locations are given on the website. Vivint Smart Home Arena is an integral part of the Salt Lake City sporting and social scene and is a respected and feared venue among the Jazz's rival teams. Easy to access with a staff dedicated to client comfort, this venue is one of the best for America's sporting fans.
