The MassMutual Center is a 6,677-seat multi-purpose arena in Springfield, Massachusetts. It is home to the Springfield Falcons Ice hockey team. Formerly known as the Springfield Civic Center, the facility opened in 1972 and was at the time one of the largest arenas in the region. It was owned and operated by the city for eighteen years before going into private hands for the next six. In 1996, it reverted to city control. A few years later, the Massachusetts Legislature authorized a major renovation of the facility and transferred ownership to the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority. The renovation included work on the arena and construction of new exhibition space facing Main Street. A plaza and bank used to be on that plot of land. In 2005 the Center was renamed when MassMutual Financial Group entered into a naming rights agreement for the arena and convention center. An arena is a circular or oval shaped public space (akin to a classical amphitheatre), designed to showcase theater, musical performances, or sporting events. ...
