Mack Sports & Exhibition Complex

On January 2, 2000 the Hofstra Basketball programs moved into the 5,023-seat Hofstra Arena, which was renamed the David S. Mack Sports and Exhibition Complex in 2006. Construction of the $15 million, 93,000 square-foot facility began in the fall of 1998 and was completed in December 1999. The Complex houses the Hofstra Men and Women's Basketball, and Wrestling teams, and also hosts commencements, exhibitions, trade shows, concerts and other special events.

“Mr. Mack has been extremely generous to Hofstra over the years, and the David S. Mack Sports Complex will serve as just the latest reminder on our campus of that generosity,” said Hofstra University President Stuart Rabinowitz, referring to the David S. and Sondra Mack Student Center and Mack Hall, which houses the University Club.

On October 15, 2008 the Mack Sports Complex hosted the third and final debate between presidential candidates Barack Obama and John McCain, which was broadcast live around the world.  Hofstra and the Mack Sports Complex will once again host a Presidential Debate as the University will host the second debate on October 16, 2012.

The Mack Sports Complex includes full chair back seating for spectators in an arena configuration. The air-conditioned facility is equipped with a state-of-the-art electronic scoreboard, men's and women's locker rooms, a training room, a large weight room, dressing rooms for stage events, four concession stands, five ticket windows, six luxury boxes and offices for Hofstra's athletic administration and basketball staffs.
