  • Mackey Arena is located in West Lafayette, Indiana. Part of the Purdue University campus, it is home to the university's basketball teams, and occasionally hosts home games for the volleyball and wrestling teams. The arena opened in 1967 as a replacement for Lambert Fieldhouse. Originally named Purdue Arena, it was renamed in 1972 to honor Purdue alumnus and long time athletic director Guy "Red" Mackey. On December 12, 1997, the floor was renamed Keady Court in honor of longtime men's coach Gene Keady. The circular arena, similar to several built in the 1960s, seats 14,846, and is considered by many as one of the loudest arenas in the nation due to its domed aluminum roof. In recent years, Mackey Arena has experienced numerous upgrades and improvements, including: * 1997 - New playing surface and basketball goals installed * 1998 - Roof repainted * 2000 - New bleachers installed * 2002 - Women's basketball locker room renovated * 2002 - Men's basketball locker room renovated * 2003 - Video and meeting room for women's basketball constructed * 2003 - Team championship and Consensus All-American jersey banners hung * 2003 - Men's basketball player lounge renovated * 2003 - Lower press row reconstructed * 2003 - Press conference and media work room renovated * 2004 - Video board installed * 2004 - Sound system installed * 2005 - Playing surface refinished * 2007-2012 - Mackey Complex Project
