A day after one of the biggest hockey extravaganzas in the 50 year history of the Blues, Mayor Francis Slay and Aldermanic President Lewis Reed will talk about a bill to bring improvements to the Scottrade Center.
Slay and Reed will join Blues ownership members Tom Stillman and Chris Zimmerman as well as Frank Viverito — the president of the St. Louis Sports Commission — for a press conference Tuesday, a press release said.
The Scottrade Center was opened in 1994 as the Kiel Center, and the Blues played their first game in the venue in January of 1995. In the 22 years since opening, the Scottrade Center has hosted numerous concerts, college sporting events and professional sporting events, including Blues home games.
The Scottrade Center ranks in the top ten in capacity in the NHL with 19,150.
The Scottrade company was sold to TD Ameritrade for $4 billion in October.
