XL Center History

Originally named the Hartford Civic Center Veterans Memorial Coliseum and Exhibition Center, the XL Center opened on January 9, 1975 when Glen Campbell and Johnny Mathis christened the arena on consecutive nights. The Hartford Civic Center Veterans Memorial Coliseum and Exhibition Center was also built to be the home of the New England Whalers (later the Hartford Whalers) of the National Hockey League. After some unfortunate events, the venue reopened on February 6, 1980 and was once again the sports and entertainment capital of the state of Connecticut, with Whalers games and top concerts by stars like The Beach Boys, The Grateful Dead and Diana Ross thrilling locals. Though the Hartford Whalers moved to Raleigh, North Carolina in 1997, becoming the Carolina Hurricanes, hockey is still played at the XL Center from time to time.
