Wednesday Quickies: New Rupp Arena Floor Edition

New, 60 comments

The Central Bank Center signage is now on the floor

College basketball is on the horizon, and it seems that the Rupp Arena floor is ready to go when the Cats tip off their season in just a couple weeks.

John Calipari tweeted out this picture of the Rupp Arena floor, which has some new additions.

The notable differences: the Central Bank Center signage on the floor and on the video board.

Rupp Arena and the convention center are in the midst of a roughly $275 million expansion and renovation to add exhibit hall space, premium club areas which will be used for alcohol sales at Kentucky basketball games, a brand-new lobby, and a new glass and metal exterior finish.

However, that project isn’t slated to be completed until 2021.

What do you think about the new floor design?
