Scottrade Center - St. Louis

Scottrade Center (originally Kiel Center and formerly Savvis Center) is a 19,150 seat arena located in downtown St. Louis, Missouri, opened in 1994. It is the home of the St. Louis Blues of the National Hockey League.

Besides ice hockey, the arena features a range of arena programming, including professional wrestling, concerts, ice shows, family shows, and other sporting events. It hosts approximately 175 events per year, drawing nearly two million guests annually. Soon after renaming, Scottrade Center ranked second among arenas in the United States and fourth worldwide in tickets sold. Industry trade publication Pollstar ranks Scottrade Center among the top ten arenas worldwide in tickets sold to non-team events.

^^Exterior and Team are Meh, but like the inside. Still 'modern' enough to stick around for a while.

Still a nice arena after all these years. Love the goal horn. (Don't tell my fellow Coyotes fans that. :blush: )

City, business leaders want millions in renovations for Scottrade Center

Citing current tax revenue and spending attracted by Scottrade Center, city leaders and St. Louis Blues executives said taxpayers should help fund an extensive renovation project.

City contributions would total $67.5 million and state contributions about $80 million in different phases of the proposal, which was rolled out in a Tuesday morning news conference. Another $40 million would come from a 1 percent tax on ticket sales at Scottrade and Peadbody Opera House, and Blues ownership would contribute $50 million privately over the next 20 to 30 years.

The city's contributions would fund new seating throughout the stadium, a new scoreboard hung in the center of the stadium, sound system and lighting upgrades, renovated locker rooms, renovated concessions stands and new administrative offices. Various entryways and facades would also get makeovers.

Connections between the Peabody and Scottrade would also be improved through a combination of private and state financing. A new roof, new escalators and elevators, a water cooling system and security upgrades would also be funded under that portion of the plan.

TD Ameritrade closed on its purchase of Scottrade and the Scottrade name will be phased out in 2018, but TD Ameritrade won’t be continuing the arena naming rights.

The Scottrade name will ultimately be phased out, including at the Scottrade Center downtown. In October, TD Ameritrade initially said the arena’s name will be changed to TD Ameritrade Center — the contract for the naming rights runs through 2021 — but the company is no longer pursuing renaming the center after TD Ameritrade, Hockey said.

“It doesn’t make any sense to continue with the TD Ameritrade brand (on the arena), so we’ll sell it back,” Hockey said. No changes to the arena’s name are expected before 2018, he said.
