History of US Airways Center
Construction on the US Airways Center began in 1990, as Suns owner Jerry Colangelo envisioned a need for a better playing facility to replace the old Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum. The new arena was officially inaugurated with a 111-105 Phoenix Suns victory over the Los Angeles Clippers in 1992. The Phoenix Suns ended up losing the NBA Championship series that year, but a congratulatory parade brought out more than 300,000 Suns fans through the downtown area and finished at the new arena.
When the Winnipeg Jets Franchise moved to Phoenix as the Phoenix Coyotes, the arena was inadequate for an NHL arena. Construction was done to cut the lower level in half in order to fit the NHL rink onto the floor. The arena was still inadequate and the Coyotes eventually moved int otheir own arena for the 2003-2004 NHL season.
The arena has also been home to the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament during the Sweet Sixteen and Elite Eight rounds in 1999, 2004, 2008, and 2012.
