Bob Devaney Sports Center

Bob Devaney Sports Center

The Nebraska Wrestling program will compete in the newly renovated Bob Devaney Sports Center beginning this year.

 

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


Following a $20 million renovation, the Devaney Center features many amenities that make it the premier wrestling 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 wrestling program also benefits from the Hendricks Training Complex, which opened in the fall of 2011. The building includes a new practice facility, coach’s offices as well as brand new strength and conditioning and athletic medicine areas.


Before moving to the Devaney Center, the NU Coliseum provided Husker wrestling with a distinct home advantage for more than 80 years. Located in the heart of campus right next to Memorial Stadium, the Coliseum provided the Huskers a thrilling match-day environment each and every season. A perfect setting for college wrestling, the Coliseum was home to the National Duals from 1993 to 1997, and hosted the 2009 Big 12 Championships when Nebraska claimed a share of the conference title.
