The Amway Arena (formerly Orlando Arena, TD Waterhouse Centre, and The Arena in Orlando ) was a now- closed indoor arena in the U.S. city of Orlando. It served primarily as a venue for the Orlando Magic ( NBA), the Orlando Predators (AFL ) and the Orlando Sharks ( MISL ), but it also found numerous other events.

The arena was built in 1989 and was financed only by public funds. In 1999, TD Waterhouse secured the naming rights until they were replaced in 2006 by Amway.

2006 plans for a new arena were known, which costs 480 million U.S. dollars and is to be completed for the season 2010/11. The building, designed by HOK Sport, among other Amway Center has a capacity of up to 20,000 seats. On 1 October 2010 the new arena was opened on the 29th of the month was the first NBA season game of the Orlando Magic held there. The Amway Arena Season 2009/2010 was since the end of the NBA closed and most of it was blown up at 7:30 clock ( Eastern Time ) on March 25, 2012.
