THE NEW UTAH JAZZ COURT
A new court has entered the Utah Jazz arena since the 1998-99 season. The excitement around the new staple of the Vivint Smart Home Areas aligns with the excitement felt around a young and promising Utah Jazz team. In the wave of this excitement, the Utah Jazz created a new look for the 2016-17 season, which included a new Connor Sports basketball court.
What’s different about the new Utah Jazz game court?
- Baselines now feature "Utah Jazz" written in a new custom font in gold lettering
- A partial tri-colored ball is featured in center court as a throwback to the classic court from the Salt Palace and Delta Center days
- The new design also includes the famous J-Note displayed inside the 3-point line
The new court was manufactured at the Connor Sports Mill in Amasa, MI. It then traveled over 1,400 miles to Idaho Falls, ID where it was painted. Once completed, the court traveled to its new home at the Vivint Smart Home Arena.
