ARENA INFORMATION

While the Intercollegiate Athletic Facility is the location of the Boilermakers' home duals, Mackey Arena will host the 2012 Big Ten Wrestling Championships, welcoming the tournament back for the first time since 2000.

Nearing the end of a $99.5 million renovation to the facility, this will be the first-ever Big Ten Championship event held with all of its new additions. With more than 14,000 seats available in its round setting, every seat in the building should provide an excellent viewing angle for the mat of your choice.

For more information on the new additions to Mackey Arena click here: http://www.purduesports.com/genrel/mackey-project.html

Parking will be available in several lots for the championships, with premium parking located in the F Lot, adjacent to Mackey Arena just off Northwestern Avenue. For information on premium or handicap parking lots, please contact the ticket office at 1-800-49SPORT.
