Formerly named the Kiel Center and the Savvis Center, Scottrade Center is one of the most comfortable and energetic arenas in the National Hockey League. Being one of the six expansion teams added when the NHL doubled its size in 1967, the Blues have much history in the league including three straight Stanley Cup appearances in the late 60’s.
Selling out games or coming very close is not unusual for the Blues. The crowds get large and especially loud against conference teams. This is due impart to a spacious comfortable arena, which contains two levels of blue seats that surround the ice while a state-of-the-art eight-sided Jumbotron overlooks the game.
Located in the heart of downtown, the 12-story glass-and-concrete Scottrade Center is the entertainment core of St. Louis. Home to the St. Louis Blues, indoor soccer league’s St. Louis Steamers, many concerts, ice shows, and other sporting events, Scottrade Center brings in close to two million guests to downtown St. Louis each year.
