MyState Bank Arena
MyState Bank Arena, traditionally known as the Derwent Entertainment Centre, is located on the banks of the River Derwent at Glenorchy, near Hobart. The venue is currently undergoing a major redevelopment ahead of the Tasmania JackJumpers joining the NBL in late 2021.
Opened in 1989, the venue is situated adjacent to the Elwick Racecourse and was the home of former NBL side Tassie Devils from its opening until the team's exit from the league in 1996. It will welcome back NBL action from the 2021-22 season with new club Tasmania JackJumpers to be based at the upgraded venue.
MyState Bank Arena can seat up to 5,400 spectators for sports events and as many as 7,500 for concerts. The venue has two tiers of seating around three sides of the court, with the lower section being temporary. There is also a temporary grandstand on the other side of the court to ensure fans surround the action.
The $66 million redevelopment will transform the Derwent Entertainment Centre into a world-class sports and entertainment facility, with a revamped court and exterior, 1600 new premium seats, new changeroom facilities and an integrated hotel. A new name was revealed in June 2021, with the venue now known as MyState Bank Arena following a three-year naming rights deal.
