Celebrating 25 years in the heart of Orange County, Honda Center
stands as one of the premier entertainment and sports venues in the
country. Opened in 1993, the venue is owned by the City of Anaheim
and managed by Anaheim Arena Management, LLC. Home to the 2007
Stanley Cup champion Anaheim Ducks, the arena annually hosts topname
concerts, exciting sporting events, and family favorites such as the
Harlem Globetrotters, Stars on Ice and Disney on Ice. Throughout the years,
capacity crowds have filled Honda Center for world-class acts, including
recent performances by P!NK, Kendrick Lamar, Shakira, Sam Smith, Chris
Stapleton, Imagine Dragons, and Depeche Mode.
Since 2005, Ducks owners Henry and Susan Samueli have invested
millions of dollars into facility upgrades, in an effort to continually enhance
the guest experience. Currently, the in-bowl seating replacement project is
underway. The first phase was completed prior to the start of the 2018-19
season, with phase two scheduled to replace the remaining Plaza Level seats
by the end of season.
Unveiled last season was the expansion of the venue’s south concourse.
This exciting communal area enhances the fan experience by providing
a space for pregame and intermission gatherings. The newly expanded
location adds thousands of square feet to the venue concourse and connects
the Anaheim Ducks Team Store with four innovative Food & Beverage
concepts: Sierra Nevada Draught House, The Kitchen, Express Eats, and
Honda Center’s first in-the-round bar outside section 208.
Honda Center offers fans a facility that is both beautiful to behold and a
delight in which to view any event, reflecting state-of-the-art design in both
form and function. Hosting an average of 160 events and 1.6 million guests
annually, the arena offers visitors incredibly comfortable seating and some of
the best sight lines and proximity to the action found anywhere.
The arena has three levels of seating. Closest to the arena floor is the Plaza
Level with 5,200 seats and 39 luxury suites. Just 21 rows above ice, the
exclusive Pacific Premier Bank Club Level is accessible only to Premium Seat
