The Scottrade Center opened its doors in 1994, as a state-of-the-art replacement for the historic Kiel Auditorium. The Scottrade Center houses the St. Louis Blues, as well as traveling ice shows, concerts and sporting events, hosting more than 150 events per year.

The facility provides 10,000 additional seats, when compared with its predecessor, Kiel, and can be configured differently for a variety of events. At its largest seating capacity, it can hold up to 22,000 guests.
