The New Jersey Devils began their playing days in the Brendan Byrne Arena in 1982, which would later be renamed the Continental Airlines Arena in 1996. The arena also became the new home for the NBA team, New Jersey Nets. It was constructed in close proximity to Giants Stadium and the Meadowlands Racetrack. All of these venues combined were commonly known as “The Meadowlands”. The stadium also hosted Seton Hall Pirates basketball, beginning in 1985, while also serving as a venue for the New Jersey Gladiators of the Arena Football League and the Fordham Rams basketball team. The stadium has since been remodeled and renamed the Izod Center, catering more towards concerts.

In 2007 the Devils and Nets moved into The Prudential Center, known as “The Rock," in reference to the logo for Prudential. The Devils were to be the only permanent members, with the Nets moving out of The Rock once their own arena, the Barclay’s Center was completed. The Prudential Center was built in a red brick exterior, paying homage to the rich railroad history of New Jersey. The arena also hosts one of the largest exterior electronic screens, which is visible to anyone riding on the train into the Newark station. Along with the Devils and Nets, the New York Liberty, Seton Hall Pirates, NJIT Highlanders, and New Jersey Rockets all call The Rock home.
