The future home of Texas men’s and women’s basketball programs opened its doors to the city of Austin with a ribbon-cutting celebration on Tuesday.

The opening event featured many prominent speakers such as Texas athletic director Chris Del Conte, Texas chairman of the board of regents Kevin Eltife, woman’s basketball coach Vic Schaefer, men’s basketball coach Chris Beard and the Minister of Culture himself, Matthew McConaughey.

McConaughey stole the show with his burnt orange suit and strong charisma. He played a major role in the development of the Moody Center project and its funding.

John Mayer will have the honor of being the first to perform at the new arena on April 20 and 21.

Take a look at a few images from inside Moody Center and some of its exciting features from Monday’s media tour.
