The MTS Bell Centre is often regarded as one of the best hockey arenas in the National Hockey League. The home of the second incarnation of the Winnipeg Jets was originally built in 2004 and for many of its fans, there is no better place for hockey in North America.
It’s hard to imagine that an $863 million construction project is only the beginning of an urban development goal, but the Little Caesars Arena is just that. The District Detroit, a 50 block neighborhood filled with entertainment venues, restaurants, bars, shopping and housing developments, hopes to revitalize a part of Detroit that has long been filled with vacant and decaying buildings, and was a symbol of the city’s decline.
Angel Stadium. The Honda Center. Two venues that stand across each other. Not quite the sports complex like the LA Coliseum and Banc of California Stadium but close enough in proximity that you could get from one to another. Both venues recently came out with a 3.71 Stadium Journey Fanfare Score. Given each venue’s age and all the newer venues that have opened after their inaugural seasons, the 3.71 score is pretty solid.
Wells Fargo Center does many things right. It is large, but still offers a fan friendly view of the action. The enthusiasm of the fans brings a whole other aspect to the game atmosphere. It is overall a great arena for hockey action.
The New York Islanders have returned back home to the Island this season with various games at its former home, the Nassau Coliseum. The Isles will continue to call its ancestral home as it waits for its brand new arena a few miles down the road at Belmont Park. To fans of the hockey team, you can go home again.
The Ducks have had plenty of success to celebrate during their first 25 years of existence. Going to a Ducks game certainly has that Southern California feel. Most nights, fans will not find themselves dressed in excessive layers while entering the arena.
