History of Xcel Energy Center
Ground was broken on the stadium on June 23, 1998. Xcel Energy Center was completed roughly two years later. The arena was built exactly where St. Paul Civic Center used to be. After Minnesota’s hockey team the North Stars moved to Dallas there was a big push for a new arena. After several unsuccessful attempts to get funding, they finally were able to receive the funding they needed in 1998. The state loaned $65 million to go towards the new arena.
Xcel Energy Center was given the title of best overall sports venue in the United States back in 2004 by ESPN.
