Known as one of the most recognizable archtectual jewels in all of Hampton Roads, the Hampton Coliseum is set on 75 acres adjacent to the Hampton Roads Convention Center. Former home to the ABA and Julius "Dr. J" Erving-led Virginia Squires, the arena has hosted a plethora of world-class sporting events and concerts since its 1970 opening. The arena is perfect for indoor athletics such as wrestling, basketball, hockey, and gymnastics. Venue amenities include four team dressing rooms, officials' rooms, full box office with nine ticket windows, press room, first aid room, and eight concession stands. The adjacent Hampton Roads Convention Center adds extra flexibility.
