The Silverstein Eye Centers Arena is a mid-size arena located just 20 minutes from downtown Kansas City. The venue opened in 2009 and has since become a premier destination for live entertainment and sports. The arena is currently home to two professional sports teams. The Missouri Mavericks, members of the ECHL and Kansas City's only pro hockey club. Also the Missouri Comets, members of the Major Arena Soccer League (MASL) and Kansas City's only pro indoor soccer club. Artists such as Ariana Grande, Bruno Mars, Kelly Clarkson, Alan Jackson, Chris Tomlin, Zac Brown Band, The Band Perry, Hillsong, The Fray, Chris Young, Lee Brice and many more have performed at the IEC! Located right next to the arena is the Centerpoint Community Ice Rink. This is one of the finest ice skating facilities in the Midwest offering year-round ice sports training, recreational youth/adult hockey leagues, figure skating, learn-to-skate classes and much more!

It truly is my very favorite sport. This venue is a great arena and we had a wonderful time. Go Mavs. The food is expensive, of course but good. The security seems to be appropriate. The bathrooms were pretty clean considering. We take in several games a year and love it!

I've had season tickets to the Comets games for a couple years now. The events center is alright, I love that it has free parking, pretty easy to get in and out of. The only real drawback is the seats around the top of the arena, if you're in row S or T it's a super long row with no... More

I've attended many hockey games, a luncheon, a craft show and a concert at the Silverstein Eye Center Arena. The Missouri Mavericks are fun to watch and a family friendly event that I highly recommend. The concert stage allowed for the artist to move to each end of the venue so I don't believe there was a bad seat. The... More

A great venue for Hockey. I've only been a couple of times - but the home team won each time and the atmosphere is very cool, fun and enjoyable. This is a must-do, if you haven't before; and a should/do-again if you've been. A fun night of action and entertainment!

I have been to several events at the IEC, mostly Missouri Mavericks Hockey. The arena its self is beautiful, clean and not a bad seat in the house. The tickets for the hockey games are a great value. I do however recommend the concession stands. They are amazingly overprice for what you are getting. I recommend eating prior to attending... More

No seat is a bad seat. Lots of concession areas and restroom facilities. Great gift shop for the Mavericks(a bit pricey, though). Lots of parking. It use to be free but I hear there is a fee now. Not sure what it is, though. Besides hockey there are other types of activities, too, like concerts and ice shows. Some high... More
