Located at an important intersection of downtown Orlando, the Amway Center serves as a central hub between modern Orlando and the historic Church Street district that remains a founding part of Orlando’s history. With a tower of steel and glass and a 180-foot screen rising into the Orlando skyline, the center provides a unique, modern structure to accent the world class facility in which the Magic play. The facility was named the 2012 Sports Facility of the Year, in part because of its striking appearance, but also because of luxurious amenities offered to patrons and sports enthusiasts. The Amway Center features the tallest high-definition video board in the NBA, allowing you to catch every second of the Magic’s plays in ultra-clear high definition, no matter where you are sitting.
