The UCCU Center (originally known as the McKay Events Center), is a multi-purpose arena in Orem, Utah. It was built in 1996 and is home to the Utah Valley Wolverines basketball team. It is also the former home of Utah Jazz's now defunct NBA Development League affiliate team, the Utah Flash, the Utah Valley Thunder of the American Indoor Football Association and the Utah Catzz of the Professional Indoor Football League.


On January 19, 2010, the Utah Valley University announced its plans to sell the naming rights to the arena at the request of the donor family, to help the university raise money.[2] At the same time, the university named its education building after David O. McKay. On August 30, 2010, Utah Community Credit Union announced it acquired the naming rights to the arena.[3]

The UCCU Center has grown to host many top touring shows such as ZZ Top, Boston, Lonestar, Styx, Maroon 5, Lifehouse, INXS, OneRepublic, Jimmy Eat World, Paramore, Kelly Clarkson and more recently The Killers, Phillip Phillips, and Pentatonix.


Fall Out Boy & Paramore brought their co-headlining tour, Monumentour, to the arena on August 13th, 2014 with New Politics as the opening act.

Panic! at the Disco will bring their Death of a Bachelor Tour to the arena on March 18, 2017 with MisterWives and Saint Motel as the opening acts.
