The Stan Sheriff Center is a 10,300-seat multi-purpose arena in Honolulu CDP,[3] City and County of Honolulu, Hawaii, on the campus of the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Initially named the Special Events Arena when it opened in 1994, the arena was renamed in 1998 after Stan Sheriff (1932–1993), a former UH athletic director who lobbied for its construction.

Events[edit]

Stan Sheriff Center is home to the University of Hawaiʻi men's Rainbow Warriors basketball and Warriors volleyball, and the women's Rainbow Wahine basketball, and Rainbow Wahine volleyball teams.

The Diamond Head Classic midseason college basketball tournament is held in December.[4] and the annual regional FIRST Robotics Competition

On May 12, 1998, the Miss Universe pageant was held at the Center.[5] As Hawaii's largest indoor arena, the Stan Sheriff Center is the site of many major concert tours in Honolulu. Concert capacity is 11,000 for an end-stage show and 11,300 for a center-stage show.

World Championship Wrestling used the Stan Sheriff Center as its Hawaiian stop from 1994 until the organization folded in 2001.

The arena hosted two NBA preseason games between the Los Angeles Lakers and Utah Jazz on October 4 and 6, 2015. Both were designated as Lakers home games; the Jazz swept the short series, winning the second game in overtime.

The arena again hosted two NBA preseason games between the Los Angeles Clippers and Toronto Raptors on October 1 and 3, 2017. Toronto ended up winning the first game, while the Clippers won the second game. The Clippers returned in 2018 for a preseason game against the Sydney Kings.
