Pinnacle Bank Arena is a 15,500-seat indoor arena in the West Haymarket District of Lincoln, Nebraska. It was completed in 2013 and replaced the Bob Devaney Sports Center as the home of the University of Nebraska's men's and women's basketball teams. A turn back tax to support a $25 million bond was approved by Lincoln voters on May 11, 2010.
On December 6, 2011, it was announced that Pinnacle Bank purchased the naming rights to the arena, at a cost of $11.25 million for 25 years. The first event at the new arena was NU's summer commencement ceremony on August 16, 2013, and the first concert was held a month later when Michael Bublé performed to a sold-out crowd on September 13. P!nk, Jason Aldean, Eagles, Elton John, Jay-Z, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and Miranda Lambert also performed at PBA in the fall of 2013. Nebraska's basketball teams both played their first game in the arena on November 8, 2013. The women blew out No. 25 UCLA in the afternoon and the men defeated FGCU later that evening.
Additionally, the arena is the main venue for Nebraska's state high school basketball tournaments.

  • We enjoyed watch the Husker women play basketball. We were able to feel the atmosphere rocking when we scored.  more »
  • Good views, acoustics, etc. Restrooms were spacious and clean. Good staff and accessibility for wheelchair users.  more »
  • Went there for a concert and the building is of good size for this. The seating was good, not to crowded and distance from stage wasn't bad at all. We parked in a parking garage down an alley and a block away. Easy walking and traffic wasn't bad even leaving. It was easy in and easy out. I will definitely go back for future events.
  • It was a great experience other than the wait to get in doors. Also just a heads up not everyone sits in their seats some stand instead sit or stand at the railing of balcony. I would have too had I known it was ok to do or that easy to get away with.
