The redevelopment of MyState Bank Arena, previously known as the Derwent Entertainment Centre, has created a dynamic and exciting venue for Tasmania and provides a new home for the JackJumpers in a distinctively Tasmanian boutique sports stadium.
March with the passionate JackJumper supporters into the redeveloped stadium beneath the glowing entrance canopy, music pumping, grab a cold drink and a bucket of the best hot chips in town and find your seat ready for tip off.
The redeveloped stadium and multi-use function centre has a distinctively Tasmanian feel. The overlapping arches and shadows of the façade are inspired by the rolling hills and mountains surrounding Hobart. The spaces are light, open and generously decorated with local Tasmanian timbers.
New lighting and AV equipment bring the stadium in line with exemplar standards for international broadcasting of sporting and entertainment events and the improved amenities and accessibility features create the best possible experience for patrons.
