Topic - Alfond Arena

Alfond Arena is a 5,124-seat multi-purpose arena in Orono, Maine, USA. The arena opened in 1977. It is home to the University of Maine Black Bears ice hockey and basketball teams. It is recognizable for its distinctive hyperbolic parabloid architecture. The multi-angular roof design can also be found at Pavilion at Villanova University, the Brown University Smith Swim Center and the Flynn Recreation Complex at Boston College. It was expanded from its original capacity of 3,800 in 1992 in order to accommodate more spectators and bring the basketball team back from its temporary home at the Bangor Auditorium. More skyboxes have been added since then, so the arena's capacity has been reduced. A new Daktronics ProStar scoreboard was installed during the summer of 2008. It is named for Harold Alfond, a longtime Maine booster, whose name also adorns Alfond Stadium, the school's main outdoor stadium. - Source: Wikipedia
