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.

Enjoyed a Comets game here! Fun!

My family recently enjoyed attending a KC Comets game here. The location was great. Seats were wonderful. Prices for concessions were reasonable. Fun evening!

First time here. We had tickets in will call dropped off earlier that day. They were not there. Go next door to ticket sales. They were not there. We were in a suite. They were very confused. 20 min later we got a hand written pass to enter. Cool arena. Glad to see the boys in blue there. We bought... More

Food was pricey but not near as bad as other venues, parking was free and tickets were cheaper than anywhere else- even for the most expensive seats. Ever since the Hunts took over though, things have gone downhill. The food is overpriced... More

An absolutely stunning ice arena venue - new, clean, welcoming and accommodating staff. However, with early morning events the coffee shop should be up and running - they really missed a good financial opportunity to sell hot beverages!

We have been season ticket holders for the Missouri Mavericks for their first seven seasons. No bad seats in the house. The top row (row Q) is still close enough to the action. No bad seats in the house. Lots of stuff to look at in the mezzanine. Concessions prices are like major league for minor league hockey, but a... More

We have season tickets to both the Mavericks hockey games and Comets arena soccer. The arena has free parking, nice staff, and every seat has a good view! We have also attended several concerts there. Concessions can tend to be a bit high, but they are at many arenas. We enjoy going there!
