Tim's Toyota Center (originally built as the Prescott Valley Convention & Events Center) is a 5,100-seat multi-purpose arena located at 3201 North Main Street in Prescott Valley, Arizona. Built in 2006, it is home to the Arizona Sundogs Central Hockey League team and to the Arizona Outlaws American Indoor Football team. It is also used for a variety of Arizona Interscholastic Association basketball and wrestling competitions; for instance, in 2011, it hosted the 1A and 2A Conference semifinal and finals games and the 3A Conference quarterfinals. It has also hosted a few monster truck shows.

Tim's Toyota, a Toyota dealership in Prescott with used car lots in Prescott Valley and Chino Valley, paid an undisclosed sum to be the corporate sponsor and namesake of the arena.

Features[edit]

The only arena of its size between Las Vegas and Phoenix, other than the Walkup Skydome in Flagstaff, it is Northern Arizona's sports and entertainment venue. Among its amenities are 24 luxury suites (including two party suites), 400 club seats, and parking for 3,000 cars. The arena accommodates up to 6,200 for concerts.

Events[edit]

The venue has hosted well-known bands such as Chicago, Godsmack, Breaking Benjamin, Three Doors Down, and ZZ Top. It hosted its first-ever WWE event on July 29, 2007. Also, when the fair comes, the inside of the arena is used as a display.

The venue also hosted a high-profile college basketball game on November 30, 2011, when Brigham Young University faced Northern Arizona.
