TD Waterhouse Centre
The TD Waterhouse Centre (formerly officially known as the Orlando Arena and unofficially known as the O-Rena) is a indoor arena in Orlando, Florida. It is part of the Orlando Centroplex with is a large sports and entertainemnt complex. It is home to the Orlando Magic of the NBA and the Orlando Predators of the Arena Football League. Completed in 1989 at a cost of $98 million - entirely publicly financed - the arena seats 17,248 for basketball and has 26 luxury suites. The naming rights were sold in 2000 to TD Waterhouse at $7.8 million for five years. It is also used for entertainment events, particularly large rock concerts.
Note: The correct spelling is TD Waterhouse Centre, not TD Waterhouse Center. This is not just because TD Waterhouse is a Canadian company. Before the Orlando Arena's naming rights were sold, the other two buildings in the Orlando Centroplex --Orlando Expo Centre and Bob Carr Performing Arts Centre --utilized that spelling as well.
