The debate will take place in the Curb Event Center, a multi-purpose building that is home to the university's basketball team. In addition to athletic events, the center also hosts concerts, speeches, tradeshows, meetings, and other events. The 90000 square-foot building has 5000 permanent seats, offices, locker rooms, and more.
Mike Curb, former lieutenant governor of California, stock-car racing enthusiast and founder/owner of Curb Records (Wynnona, Tim McGraw, Sawyer Brown, LeAnne Rimes), is a major benefactor of the university and the arena. The university honored his involvement by naming the arena after him.
Side note: Curb does not limit his involvement in higher education to Belmont. He has endowed programs at both Vanderbilt University and Rhodes College (Memphis) and has pledged $10million to his alma mater, Cal State Northridge. He has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
