Men's & Women's Basketball; Men's & Women's Volleyball
The Matadome is the indoor home for the CSUN men’s
and women’s basketball teams as well as the Matador
men’s and women’s volleyball teams.
The 51-year-old facility has undergone significant renovations since the conclusion of the 2011-12 season. A new floor, air conditioning, and visual upgrades completed in the summer of 2012 have given the Matadome its first significant makeover in a decade.
Last season, new baskets and shot clocks were installed for basketball games as well as new press row tables, video display boards, a scoreboard above center court, and wall graphics. With a brand new floor and a redesigned court, the Matadome received a dramatic overhaul just in time for the 51st anniversary of the first home game played in the facility in November, 2012.
Fans will notice wall graphics on the east end of the Matadome commemorating CSUN’s post-season successes and a mural of fans cheering on the Matadors. In addition, a new public address system has been installed.
New renovations also allow for the expanded use of live video for all competitions.
The home of Matador Basketball and Volleyball is located at the corner of Zelzah Avenue and Plummer Street on the CSUN campus.
The overall attendance record for a sporting event in the facility is 3,106, achieved in standing-room-only fashion on Nov. 2, 1990, when the United States defeated Japan in an international exhibition men’s volleyball match.
During its first years of collegiate basketball competition, the CSUN men’s basketball team played its home games at several high school gyms in the San Fernando Valley before its first home game at the Matadome on Nov. 30, 1962 when the Matadors hosted Pepperdine. At the start of the 2012-13 season, 518 men’s basketball games have been played at the Matadome.
The Matadome is complete with men’s and women’s locker rooms as well as a training room and equipment storage space. It is adjacent to the Matadors’ swimming pool complex, a fitness center and six racquetball courts. The facility also houses classrooms and office for the University’s Department of Kinesiology and Physical Education.
