Purcell Pavilion - Basketball & Volleyball

Purcell Pavilion

Purcell Pavilion, home to the Irish men's and women's basketball and volleyball teams, opened in October 2009 after a massive $26.3 million addition and renovation to the Joyce Center — a project that began with groundbreaking ceremonies in September of 2008. The finished product, which maintains the intimate environment that has provided a home-court advantage for Notre Dame since the facility first debuted in 1968, also houses Notre Dame ticket operations in the Murnane Family Ticket offices, the Mike Leep Sr. Varsity Shop and Club Naimoli, an innovative seating and hospitality area.

With 9,149 matching blue chair-back seats, Purcell Pavilion also features a redone concourse area with ivory-colored flooring to complement a variety of theming elements that highlight the history of the venue and the various programs and events that have occurred over the last 42 years.

A new Daktronics video board in Purcell Pavilion premiered on Sept. 17, 2010, during the Irish volleyball team's game against Delaware. Four separate 18'x 11' 10 mm screens are attached to a center-hung frame with a circular LED message center encompassing the lower rim of the board. New LED message boards replaced the four lower-level entry ramp scoreboards. A 10 mm scoring table message center now sits along the south floor boundary of center court. In addition to the video and message center capabilities, the video board features a state-of-the-art sound system.
