The Sioux Falls Arena was built in 1961.  On November 8, 2011 the citizens of Sioux Falls passed the events center special ballot, allowing design and construction of a new almost 12,000 seat events center to be built next to the old arena.

According to siouxfallseventscenter.org:

"The Sioux Falls Events Center is a multipurpose facility that will house sporting events, concerts, conventions, banquets, etc. that will improve the quality of life and stimulate economic return to the citizens of Sioux Falls."

According to Ben Davis:

"Damn this is a nice building!"

The Events Center is scheduled to open Sept. of 2014.

Sioux Falls Mayor Mike Huether was kind enough to set up a tour for Results Radio folks.  And what a great tour it was!

Our gracious hosts for the day were Project Manager-Kendra Siemonsma & General Manager-Terry Torkildson.  Check out our Denny Sanford Premier Events Center 3 Minute Video Tour:
