The four smallest basketball arenas in the ACC have a combined capacity lower than that of Syracuse’s newly named WMA Wireless Dome. The 42-year-old venue is – by far – the biggest primary home venue in Division-I men’s college basketball.

When Syracuse moved from the Manley Field House to the newly constructed Carrier Dome in 1980, they had the biggest home venue in the country. And that hasn’t changed in more than four decades.
