The Suites available in the renovated State Farm Center are the most sought-after destinations in the arena. The suites accommodate up to 15 guests each. They include padded, premium chairs with terrific, unobstructed views of the game. All suites line the east side of the court with convenient access to the Traditions Club and other amenities in the arena. The suites are furnished with lounge chairs and a kitchenette area in the back. The suites feature high-end finishes and state-of-the-art audio and video components to enhance game day for guests.
Fans taking advantage of the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of courtside seating for Fighting Illini games experience the action like never before. The renovated State Farm Center features 120 seats hugging the sideline of the court. You are close enough to touch the court and allows you to experience sights and sounds of the game available only to courtside seating. Seat holders also have exclusive access to Club 53. This brand new lounge is located on the floor level, behind the scenes from the bowl, and is a favorite for courtside seat holders to gather before and after the game and during breaks in the action. The club area is near the tunnel entrances to the floor, giving patrons the opportunity to watch the Fighting Illini as they prepare to run onto the court.
The Traditions Club seats provide fans comfortable, padded chairs in a prime location of the arena with access to the new Traditions Club. Fans at Memorial Stadium already love the conveniences of the Colonnades Club, and the Traditions Club features many of the same amenities, including upscale concessions with full beverage service. The private club space is accessible only to premium seating members and highlights the unforgettable moments, great achievements, and favorite players and coaches that have impacted the University of Illinois throughout the generations.
State Farm Center loge seating provides fans access to many of the amenities of suite holders in a semiprivate setting. Patrons in loge seating may select the number of seats they wish to reserve. Each features padded seats with ample leg room. Seats also feature granite countertops and television displays. Fans have in-seat dining and beverage service, avoiding all lines at concession stands. In addition, guests in this area also have access to the Traditions Club to enjoy socializing before and after the game and during halftime.
