The Utah Jazz play in the NBA’s Western Conference Northwest Division and had a rocky start as an expansion team in 1974. Originally from New Orleans—thus the name Jazz—the team moved to Utah in 1979 and within five years made their first playoff appearance. The post season debut led to 19 straight playoff appearances and cemented the team as a force in the northwest. A powerhouse of the 1990s, the Jazz developed a rivalry with the Chicago Bulls.

Prior to their success in the ’90s, the team made their home at the now demolished Salt Palace, which was built during a bid for the 1972 Winter Olympics. The current venue, Vivint Arena, provides seating for 18,306 fans, with 56 luxury suites and 668 club seats. Construction of the venue was completed in October 1991 with a price tag of $93 million. In 2016 the arena underwent a $125 million upgrade further modernizing the place the Jazz call home, including going completely cash-free. Fans who want seats to a 2021 – 2022 game have options ranging from discount tickets to luxury suites.
