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!

Great place to attend events and watch the Mavericks play! We have attended the Circus and multiple games as a family. We have also attended work Christmas parties there in the suites.

We always enjoy Nick and his teaching staff. They are very friendly and helpful. Nick is always setting up a variety of opportunities for ice skating beyond lessons. The only thing I would add is a healthy concession offering for those families who are running from one activity to the next. (Examples: fruit bars (frozen or wrapped), smoothies?, nuts, etc)

Been here about 4 times, every seat is great, good food and alcohol prices, retail is about stadium costs. Mavericks make it really entertaining, family friendly, lots of energy. Good parking availability, wear a hoodie for comfort, as it is an ice rink.

Great! Great place! Walked in with strong glasses and an astigmatism and walked out 20/20. Friendly staff....organized and not stressful. I would highly recommend Silverstein.

We totally loved this arena. There really aren't any bad seats and the prices were very reasonable, plus the parking is free

Our school district holds graduation here every year to accommodate our multiple high schools and large populations. Line of sight is good from just about anywhere. Restrooms are plentiful and easy to find (though not well-lit), and staff are polite and helpful.

I brought out of town visitors to watch their first hockey game at the Silverstein Eye Centers Arena. The crowd was a lot of fun. No rude fans. We purchased the cheap seats since we were not fans and still had a great view of the rink.

While on a business trip I caught a Missouri Mavericks game. First, parking was Free and plentiful. This Arena is a small facility, seating about 9000. Every seat for the Hockey game is a good seat. The atmosphere for the game was GREAT. When they did play canned music it was not too loud like other arenas. Food prices were... More

We went for a hockey game and loved it. The seats are all great and near the ice, the crowd really gets into thee game and the announcers keep your attention. The bathrooms are easily accessible and clean. Our kids think this is the highlight of the trip to Independence.
