History

The arena was built in 1987, to be used at 1987 Summer Universiade and was then known as the Cibona Sports Center. In 1993 it was renamed after the late former NBA player and basketball Hall of Famer Dražen Petrović, a former Cibona star. Petrović died earlier that same year in a car accident, cutting his great career short.
