The Atlanta Hawks are reducing the capacity of Philips Arena by approximately 2,350 seats.
Steve Koonin said of the seating capacity “the building is down to 15,700 and that is because the suite wall is gone.”
The last three seasons, 2014-2017, the listed basketball capacity for Philips Arena was 18,047. It was listed as 18,118 in 2013-14 and 18,238 in 2012-13.
The $192.5 million remaking of the 18-year-old arena will be spread over two offseasons.
