About Hy-Vee Arena:

Hy-Vee Arena is bringing new life to the historic Stockyards District at the former Kemper Arena. The $39

million-dollar renovation has transformed the single level 18,000 seat arena into a multi-level, multi-

Installation of a second floor created over 82,000 square feet of column-free event space bringing a total

of 12 basketball courts to the arena. The courts are striped for volleyball, futsal and 24 pickleball courts.

Sports agility, fitness facilities, health care services, retail, entertainment and dining services surround the

two hardwood court floors. Above the second level of courts is one of the largest indoor practice tracks at

350m in length.
