Angel of the Winds Arena
Angel of the Winds Arena
is an $83.3 million multi-purpose complex, in Everett, Washington, designed and developed by the Everett Public Facilities District. The Everett Events Center opened in October 2003. Naming rights were sold to Comcast
in 2007, who renamed the arena to Comcast
Arena at Everett. In 2014, the name was changed to Xfinity Arena, named after the Xfinity
brand that was adopted by the Comcast Cable division.[8][9] Angel of the Winds Casino Resort, operated by the Stillaguamish Tribe, signed a 10-year, $3.4 million contract to become the arena's new naming rights sponsor in 2017.[10] The 10,000-seat venue has hosted a variety of concerts and other types of performances. A few events that have showcased at Angel of the Winds Arena include Ringling Brothers Circus, The Spa, Pool, and Swimspa Show, moto cross, and family shows such as Disney on Ice, Harlem Globetrotters, Sesame Street Live
Sesame Street Live
and a myriad of others. The venue served as the host for 2008 Skate America, a three-day ice-skating championship featuring world class skaters. The events were both nationally and internationally televised on NBC. It was the first event of six in the 2008-2009 ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating, a senior-level international invitational competition. This was Skate America's largest attendance ever recorded in its history.[citation needed] In 2016, the arena served as the host for the 2016 Pacific Rim Gymnastics Championships.[11]
