(now called Enterprise Center)

Formerly known as the Kiel Center and the Savvis Center, the Scottrade Center (taking that name in 2006) opened in 1994 on the former site of the Kiel Auditorium. It is best known as the home of the NHL’s St. Louis Blues, but it has hosted numerous other sporting and non-sport events. The sports/entertainment venue has 18,724 seats (it once held 19,260 in the beginning), and on average, it holds 175 events every year. Wrestling, basketball, figure skating, ice shows and circuses have been large draws at the Center. Several big-name musicians and bands have performed here, such as Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, Taylor Swift and Garth Brooks. Every year since 1995, the Scottrade Center has hosted the basketball tournament known as ‘March Madness’. In 2017, the St. Louis Blues celebrated their 50th anniversary as a team. During mid-2017, the arena was renovated on the inside; thus no events were held on Blues’ off-season.

On May 21, 2018, it was announced that Enterprise Holdings acquired the naming rights and the facility’s name would be changed to Enterprise Center (effective 7/1/2018).
