The Matadome

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 49-year-old facility has undergone major reconstruction in recent years, receiving a new floor in 1996, a state-of-the-art scoreboard above center court in 1997, chair-backed bleachers in 1998 and a redesigned court in 2001.

The refurbished 1,600-seat gym is located at the corner of Zelzah Avenue and Plummer Street on the Cal State Northridge 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 Cal State Northridge 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 Jan. 2, 1962 when the Matadors hosted Long Beach State. In all, 518 men's basketball games have been The Matadome. Forty of the 48 men's basketball seasons at The Matadome have produced winning records.

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 raquetball courts. The facility also houses classrooms and offices for the University's Department of Kinesiology and Physical Education.

The gym has direct high pressure sodium lighting. It is recommended that photographers use 3200 ASA film for action photography as there is NO FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY ALLOWED.

A telephone is available for working media at press row during all games. The Matadome press row telephone number is (818) 677-4702.
