The American Airlines Arena (also known as 'Triple-A') is a famous sports and entertainment arena, located at Biscayne Boulevard, Miami. The American Airlines Arena is home to 'Miami Heat' team of the National Basketball Association. With a construction cost of over 357 million dollars, the Arquitectonica or the Heinlein Schrock Stearns (as they were known formerly) built the stadium to hold over 19,600 spectators for a basketball match. For the center stage location, it can hold more than 20,000 audiences for a 360° show. The American Airlines Arena has hosted finals of National Basketball Association in 2006, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014. The arena sits on 38 million dollars of county land. The Miami-Dade Commissioner Katy Sorenson, who also opposed the arena in 1996, said that the construction of the arena was not a good deal for the county. However, the Miami Heat has not faced use the 357 million dollar stadium ever since.
