The Xcel Energy Center, home to the Minnesota Wild, is a premier venue for concerts and sports, regularly hosting more than 20,000 guests. Xcel Energy Center—a nine-time nominee for Arena of the Year by Pollstar and the No. 3 Stadium Experience according to ESPN—has seen huge events such as the 2008 and 2016 U.S. Figure Skating Championships, the Republican National Convention (2008) and the Frozen Four (2002, 2011), which will return in 2018. Not content with setting the gold standard for NHL Arenas (and earning countless accolades to prove it), the “X” recently became the first arena in the world to be certified to three major international sustainability standards: LEED, Green Globes and APEX/ASTM.
