The Verizon Wireless Arena is an indoor events arena in Manchester, New Hampshire, and seats 9,852 for ice hockey, 11,140 for basketball and up to 11,770 for concerts. Verizon Wireless paid for the arena's naming rights. The facility was originally known during construction as Civic Arena, and this name still appears on most of the directional signs around town. The arena contains 542 club seats, 34 luxury suites, and 5 party suites.
The Verizon Wireless Arena's physical features include its notable curved blue roof, which helps heavy New Hampshire snowfall to slide off. The arena's east, north and south facades are completely glass, which provides a view of the Manchester skyline to spectators. The west facade is made of brick. The arena has two luxury boxes, on the east and west sides of the interior. The arena also has a unique design to capture heat, so fans and spectators can watch events and games comfortably.
