DETROIT’S LITTLE CAESARS ARENA –
By Michael D. Kilgore Sr.
The Detroit Pistons and The Detroit Red Wings are calling the new Little Caesers Arena Home this year. At Red Wings games fans will experience the best sight line views in all of Hockey.
A steep layout offers good seats anywhere in the building. The lower bowl has nearly the same amount of seats as the upper bowl. Total capacity seating is 20,000 with the lower bowl accounting for 9,000 at The LC Arena.
For Red Wings fans, that’s 3,000 more lower bowl seats in a steeper design.
In 1988 The Palace of Auburn Hills was constructed. Pistons owner Bill Davidson wanted to build the future of Sports arenas with the first Super Arena in the NBA for his beloved Pistons. Many teams used the Palace as a model design for their new arenas for years to come.
Constructed a half hour north of Detroit Fans had a sense endearment for the building as championships was won from their Bad Boys Teams that embodied the city of Detroit. The Palace had an enormous lower bowl with the design being outward; Piston fans at LC Arena will experience better viewing also in the upper bowl.
New Pistons owner Tom Gore’s taking the history of the team to the new arena as huge priority, changing the logo as it gave a nod to the Bad Boy Pistons and the original hardwood at The Palace.
Little Caesers Arena will have many more food options as well. The arena will also be the home of the largest seamless video board with 11 million LED lights. A steel frame has been constructed that hangs from the roof above the floor will be known as Gondola seating to give fans a birds eye view of the action. The jumbotron won’t be an issue anymore for Wings fans. Once squinting to see the jumbo at The Joe. The one at LC Arena measures 44 feet on all sides.
