RICHMOND, Va. – The basketball arena at the Siegel Center just north of the Virginia Commonwealth University campus in Richmond recently got a name change.
The arena was called the Alltel Pavilion at the Stuart C. Siegel Center since being built in 1999. Now it is called the Verizon Wireless Arena.

RICHMOND, Va. – One year ago, Virginia Commonwealth University Athletics started a membership program called the Student Ram Athletic Fund. The program’s goal is to get students to donate money in support of VCU’s sports teams.
Students pay $25 to join the program. The money goes to the Athletic Department to help cover costs.
“And that’s…how we raise the money for scholarships and it helps them get better equipment,” said Alex Fotiou, the Assistant Director of Development and Corporate Sponsorships.
