Prudential Center is a multi-purpose indoor arena in the Downtown district of Newark, New Jersey. The arena was designed by Populous (formerly HOK Sport), with the exterior designed by Morris Adjmi Architects. Opened in 2007, it is the home of the National Hockey League's New Jersey Devils, the National Basketball Association's New Jersey Nets (only from 2010-2012), and the NCAA's Seton Hall Pirates men's basketball team. The arena seats 17,625 people for hockey and 18,500 for basketball. Fans and sports writers have affectionately nicknamed the Prudential Center "The Rock," in reference to the corporate logo of Prudential Financial.
