Because of the history of name changes, it is often referred to as Meadowlands Arena.
Izod Center was formerly home to the New Jersey Nets, of the NBA, the New Jersey Devils, of the NHL and the Seton Hall Pirates, of the NCAA. They have since moved to the Prudential Center, in nearby Newark. The Izod Center currently hosts part of the Fordham Rams' men's basketball schedule.
