The Jon M. Huntsman Center is a sports arena on the University of Utah campus. It is where you can watch the U of U Men's and Women's Basketball teams and the Women's Gymnastics team compete.


The Jon M. Huntsman Center has been regarded as one of the top college arenas in the nation since opening its doors in 1969. Long recognized as a site of championships, the Huntsman Center played host to the 1979 NCAA Basketball Championship "Dream Match-Up" featuring Indiana State's Larry Bird and Michigan State's Magic Johnson-deemed one of the most successful Final Fours ever held. The men's NCAA regional tournament received a Huntsman Center booking in 1984, '85, and '87, and the NCAA first and second rounds took place in the arena in 1988, '89, '90, '91, '93, '95, '97, 2000, '03, and ‘06. The JMHC has hosted over 75 games in the facility. The Huntsman Center has also played host to nine national gymnastics championships and the 1993 World University Games Trials.
