You can catch the NC State Men’s Basketball team or the Carolina Hurricanes playing a game at the PNC Arena located in Raleigh, NC. If you ever go to a Hurricanes game on the same evening that there was a Basketball game, I highly recommend you show up to the arena early! The staff works really fast in transforming the court back into the icy atmosphere needed for the later game. I have seen it happen a couple times and I cannot get over how cool it is to watch!
The PNC Arena came to Raleigh in October 1999 along with the move of the Hartford Whalers Hockey Team to NC. It can hold over 19,000 fans for a basketball game or a little over 18,000 during ice hockey games. In addition to housing these teams, you can catch a number of LIVE shows in the arena from musical performances (such as Brantley Gilbert coming in October) to ice performances like the anticipated Frozen on Ice. Check out the link below for a schedule of events coming to the PNC Arena in Fall 2014 through 2015!
