EagleBank Arena (formerly the Patriot Center) is a 10,000-seat arena located on the campus of George Mason University, that hosts some of today’s hottest events with past concerts by performers such as Sting, Prince, R.E.M., James Taylor, Bruce Springsteen and Pearl Jam. Annual events at the Patriot Center include the Ringling Brothers & Barnum and Bailey Circus, The Harlem Globetrotters, Sesame Street Live, Disney On Ice and The Wiggles. A recent $10 million renovation added new concession stands, new bathrooms, a new box office and a new façade for the concourse and entrances.
During the summer of 2015, George Mason University and EagleBank formed a multimillion-dollar strategic partnership that includes a broad array of education programs and an agreement to change the name of the Patriot Center to EagleBank Arena at George Mason University. The partnership creates scholarships and internships, launches a lecture series and mentoring programs, provides arena improvements and establishes a long-term relationship between the two organizations.
