University of Memphis Facilities

The Fed Ex Forum

As the home of the Memphis Tigers and the Grizzlies, the $250 million state-of-the art FedExForum seats over 18,000 for basketball games and covers 805,850 square feet on 13.8 acres. Rising 135 feet above Beale Street. FedExForum offers a wide variety of fan amenities including comfortable seats and spacious aisles, two main concourses with over 100 points of sale for concessions and merchandise, three restaurants, sport themed restaurants with outdoor patio, and on site parking for 1500 vehicles.

Once in their seats, the first thing fans will notice is the massive video board. Designed by Daktronics, the center-hung scoreboard is the focal point of the system, providing fans with live video, instant replays and information on 10 large digital full-color displays, including four dedicated scoring sections. The scoreboard is one of the biggest in the country, measuring approximately 22 feet high by 38 feet in diameter.

The Tigers also have a state-of-the-art locker room facility just off the playing floor. The area has players and coaches locker rooms, a training room, video room and players lounge. The locker room is one of the best facilities in the nation.

The Finch Center

The Tigers have a world-class practice facility in the Larry O. Center located on the University of Memphis campus.

The 31,000-square-foot center cost $3.2 million to build. The facility continues to take shape. The next project for the Finch Center is to turn the entrance area into a Memphis Basketball Hall of Fame, which will chronicle the Tigers’ glorious basketball history.

The Larry O’ Finch Center was dedicated Feb. 24, 2000.
