Acrisure Arena: More than an Entertainment Hub

Acrisure Arena has been under construction for 14 months after breaking ground in June 2021 for the $250–300 million project. The 10,000-seat Arena has been taking shape over the past year for anybody traveling along Interstate 10.

According to project executive Bill Dieter, more than 400 employees built the Acrisure Arena. As the project is nearly complete, installing a 17,000-square-foot concrete ice rink marked another significant construction milestone for Acrisure Arena.

“They were laying down the concrete ice floor with tons of heavy machinery, but there was much hands-on labor to complete the concrete. The construction team laid about 17,000 square feet of concrete on the concrete ice floor. So we’ll have about, it’ll be right around 400 yards for today.

Project Executive Bill Dieter

The official “first sitter,” V. Manuel Perez, Riverside County’s Fourth District supervisor, will host the Coachella Valley Firebirds hockey club and several concerts and events when it opens in December.

This construction is taking place quite rapidly. The first hockey game will officially take place on December 18. Thus, seeing the rink’s concrete and even one single seat is a significant milestone for the team responsible for keeping the project on track.

Final Round of Construction

A horseshoe-shaped collection of stands already has fences and concrete slabs. Moreover, the concrete sheet is one of the project’s final components. And this will take place in late November or early December.

Retractable seats will be placed in an open space on the Arena’s west end. These seats will be used for hockey games and maybe pulled back against the wall to make way for a stage for concerts.
