Civic Center (Providence)

on September 20, 2007 - 12:12pm

 

The Providence Civic Center (now called The Dunkin' Donuts Center), is an indoor arena located in Providence, Rhode Island, USA. Completed in 1972, the arena was built as a place for the emerging Providence College men's basketball program and the high demand for tickets to their games in Alumni Hall, as well as for the then-Providence Reds, who played in the nearly fifty-year old Rhode Island Auditorium. The arena was known as the Providence Civic Center until a naming rights deal was reached with Dunkin' Donuts in June 2001. Capacity approx. 12,000. (Wikipedia)
