The Thomas & Mack Center, located on the campus of the University of Nevada Las Vegas, is a state-of-the-art sports and entertainment facility. The facility was named for two prominent Las Vegas bankers, E. Parry Thomas and Jerome Mack, who established the original land foundation and donated $500,000 for feasibility studies and the initial architectural renderings.
Initially the buildings construction plans centered around one event only- college basketball. But over its 20-year history, this one-dimensional concept dramatically changed. Because of many physical attributes, the Center is capable of hosting just about any type of event imaginable.
