Stampede Fans Excited For Events Center Ice

Stampede Fans Excited For Events Center Ice
SIOUX FALLS, SD - Fans Stampeded into the Sioux Falls arena this weekend to watch their favorite team hit the ice.

And with Sioux Falls getting a new events center fans couldn't be happier.

"I think that'll be great, we love to come to the Stampede games, come to about five to 10 games a year and I think it's going to be awesome in a new arena," Kevin Hane of Sioux Falls said.

Clemeng Gisi of Sioux Falls feels the same way, he's been coming to the Sioux Falls arena since the Herd's very first season back in 1999.

"I think it's great, they should've done this ten years ago," Gisi said. 

But not only are fans excited to watch the team play in a new events center, they're also looking forward to watching the team play on a brand new, full sized rink.

"I think that's a good thing, because they play on a lot of big rinks as it is, and they only have this little rink to play on here, and I think they'll win more games if they have a bigger rink to start with," Gisi said.

"Hockey's a great game, lot of fast action, larger rink will be really outstanding," Hane said.

The Herd's current rink isn't even regulation-sized due to the Arena's space, and the sightlines leave something to be desired. So with the excitement of a new facility for the Stampede to play in, fans like Kevin Hane will be more than happy to attend as many games as they can.

"Might even come more with a better arena, nicer seating and everything," Hane said.

And that could draw in even bigger crowds for a bigger sheet of ice.
