    The Dean E Smith Student Activities Center, or Dean Smith Center for short, is home to the University of North Carolina's NCAA Basketball team, the Tar Heels. The center opened in 1986 with construction costs of $33.8 million. The stadium has been expanded twice and uses a hardwood playing surface. The stadium was built with a seating capacity of 2,144 which has increased to 21,750 for its current capacity. Getting a good seat at Dean Smith Center may be difficult because almost every seat on the lower level is sold as a season ticket package. The stadium is known for having a huge home-court advantage and rarely loses more than a few games at home. The stadium has also hosted music concerts such as Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi and President Obama who was a senator at the time spoke at Dean Smith Center.
