The Donald L. Tucker Center

A Florida State basketball game at the Tallahassee-Leon County Civic Center is as exciting as it gets! FSU fans are spoiled by more than just a great basketball team playing in the nation's finest conference, they also get to watch the game in surroundings that are as modern as any in the country.

The Tallahassee-Leon County Civic Center is the home for Seminole basketball, and the multi-purpose facility comes alive on game day. So impressive is the facility and the general atmosphere of an FSU basketball game that the Civic Center and Florida State University served as the host of the first round of the 1995 Men's NCAA Basketball Tournament. Since that time, numerous improvements have been made to the already-outstanding structure.

Prior to the 2000-01 basketball season, the Civic Center completed an expansion project which began in October of 1998 in which 34 luxury suites and 468 club seats at mid-level in the arena were added. In addition, the upper level seating was configured to offer better viewing and additional concession stands and restrooms were added. 12,200 seats are available for fans of FSU basketball, who are treated to one of the most spectacular shows in college hoops. An impressive four-sided, center hung Megavision video display, a state-of-the-art sound system and four new scoreboards in the upper corners of the arena were also recently added. When there is a break in action, the video display comes alive with highlight tapes, animated games and other crowd-pleasing bits.

Adding even more appeal to the facility is the Civic Center's restaurant, the Spotlight Grill. This 450-seat arena-view restaurant includes an outdoor patio and ledge seating for viewing arena events. The multi-purpose facility, which opened its doors in 1981, covers over 22 acres in the heart of Tallahassee's thriving downtown district. The Civic Center is only two blocks from the Capitol building and is just across the street from FSU's nationally-acclaimed Law School and Center for Professional Development.

The complex covers over 18,000 square feet with 119-foot ceilings in the main arena. The Civic Center is actually three different areas combined under one roof. The main arena, where FSU hosts its home games, is also the center for hockey league contests, arena football action as well as some of the nation's top musical concerts and Broadway plays and even a circus. The Exhibition Hall, which joins the main arena via a spatial hallway, can seat 5,000 for an event or serve as an indoor display area. The complex also features a terrace, which is popular for outdoor hosting.

As one of Florida's busies venues, the Civic Center recently completed a $1.2 million renovation to its six meeting rooms, covering some 16,000 square feet. Because of its versatility and accessibility, the Civic Center continues to be a popular location for trade shows and conventions.
