Oregon Ducks: A Tour of Matthew Knight Arena

During a recent trip to Nike Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon, we got the opportunity to travel to Eugene for a tour of the University of Oregon facilities, including Matthew Knight Arena, which plays home to Oregon Ducks basketball. Named after the late son of Nike co-founder Phil Knight, who also served as the chief donor, the arena is a state-of-the-art facility that was opened in January 2011. Designed by TVA Architects of Portland and Ellerbe Becket of Kansas City, the $227 million dollar event center has become well-known for its special hardwood floor graphics designed by the iconic Tinker Hatfield, dubbed Deep In the Woods. In addition, we got a look into the famous, custom-built Duck Truck.
