Climate Pledge Arena, formerly known as KeyArena at Seattle Center, is re-opening in the summer of 2021. In June of 2020, Amazon purchased the naming rights to rename the arena and spread awareness on climate change. According to ESPN, the arena is “trying to become the first arena in the world to earn net zero carbon certification by the International Living Future Institute.” This means ice for hockey games will be made from recaptured rainwater. Not only will will the stadium focus on zero waste production, but at least 75% of the arena’s food program will be sourced seasonally by local farmers and producers. The arena will also have all-electric operations.
In an effort to accommodate NHL and NBA teams, the arena is currently undergoing a major renovation. This includes 800,000 new square feet, new seating, premium spaces and more! On December of 2018, the NHL announced that Seattle was awarded the 32nd expansion team known as the Seattle Kraken. The Seattle Kraken is expected to start their inaugural season in the fall of 2021. As of now, there are no plans for the NBA to award a team to Seattle, but the arena is ready if there are plans for league expansion.
The arena is expected to have capacity for 17,100 fans for hockey games and 18,100 fans for basketball games. In addition to basketball and hockey, the arena will hold other regular events. Events such as concerts, ice shows, circuses and others will be played/performed at the arena.
