When in Newark, Prudential Center is the place to go for a game of hockey or college basketball. Known as The Rock, the arena is home to the NHL's New Jersey Devils and the NCAA's Seton Hall Pirates. From the jerseys of high school teams to the Devils store and the outdoor plaza, you'll be constantly reminded that this is the hockey epicenter of New Jersey. The arena combines state-of-the art broadcasting technology and amenities, such as bars and restaurants, to give the fans a pleasurable game experience. In addition to sports, the center often hosts concerts and other live events. Depending on the event, the arena's capacity shifts between 16,500 and 19,500; the surrounding area provides enough parking spaces regardless.

  • I had the honor of becoming the 2019 McDonald’s Gospel Fest Poetess at this historic place. Chosen out of 20,000 contestants nation wide! God is amazing like that and all the Glory and honor to Him!!! I grew up seeing many, many, many events in the seats here. I love how God turned the tables! Thank you for hosting such an awesome event and allowing the Center to be a door way into my destiny!!! God bless!!!
  • Nice hall for NJ Devils - so if you're ice hockey fan, must to be here. Easily accessible from the Newark Penn Station - around 7 minutes walk, so very user friendly. Also for this year (and actually for today - 26th August 2019) - hosting MTV awards - so all neighbourhood might be pretty crowded and some major streets around are closed
