Magness Arena -- the 7,200-seat, multi-purpose sports arena at the University of Denver -- hosts DU's teams, first and foremost, but the Pioneers basketball and ice-hockey players are far from the only people to grace the floors of this venue. Completed in 1999 as part of the university’s new Ritchie Center sports complex, the arena also hosts Easter passion plays, concerts and other such happenings as the sports schedule permits. Named for cable-television pioneer Bob Magness (who donated $10 million for the center) and lauded for its upholstered seats, audio and video support (including a four-sided video board) and capacity to host sit-down dinners, this is one arena that’s deserving of its gold-spired tower, which shows the city where the champions play.
