As the host of “Arch Madness,” Scottrade Center is home to some pretty solid word play to go along with all the other games at the arena. The Scottrade Center has hosted Arch Madness each year since in the month of March since 1995. It is the men's basketball conference tournament for the Missouri Valley Conference.
Hosting more than 175 events per year, the Scottrade Center provides residents of Missouri with plenty of excitement. It is the primary home to live hard hitting hockey with St. Louis Blues tickets and is located in downtown St. Louis, Missouri. The arena was originally known as the Kiel Center and then the Savvis Center.
Seating for hockey games is just over 19,100 and seating for basketball games and concerts is right around 22,000. The Missouri Valley Conference Men's Basketball Tournament (NCAA) has been held at the stadium since it opened.
Each year, the Universities of Illinois and Missouri play a men's college basketball game known as the "Braggin' Rights" game.
Since 1997, the Built Ford Tough Series has been held at the center annually. It is hosted by the Professional Bull Riders. High school hockey teams from St. Louis take part in the Mid-States Club Hockey Association Challenge Cup and the Wickenheiser Cup finals.
