Bob Devaney Sports Center

The newly renovated 7,907-seat Bob Devaney Sports Center is one of the top venues for gymnastics in the country.

Following a $20 million renovation, the Devaney Center features many amenities that make it the premier gymnastics venue in the nation. The renovated building includes five suites and new ceiling trusses that mimic the NU Coliseum. The Devaney Center also now includes 10MM video boards. Fan amenities include increased and renovated restrooms and updated concession stands.

The Devaney Center has been the home of Nebraska gymnastics for more than 30 years. Named after Bob Devaney, Nebraska's highly successful football coach and athletic director (1962-93), the building was opened in the fall of 1976 and is located on the Nebraska State Fairgrounds.

The building also houses the volleyball, wrestling, track and field and swimming teams. Since its opening, the Devaney Center has hosted numerous national, regional and conference championship events, including 10 NCAA Men's Gymnastics Championships. Most recently, the Devaney Center played host to the 2009 NCAA Women's Gymnastics Championships.
