KeyBank Center - Buffalo, NY

The largest indoor arena in Western New York, KeyBank Center is the premier sports and entertainment center in the city of Buffalo. It’s the home of the NHL’s Buffalo Sabres, and the Buffalo Bandits of the National Lacrosse League. It was originally known as the Marine Midland, and the name changed from HSBC Arena to First Niagara Center and finally to KeyBank Center in 2016. KeyBank Center has welcomed more than 24 million people since it opened in 1996. It has played host to the home games of the Sabres and the Bandits, hockey leagues, basketball games and live concerts.

KeyBank Center has a seating capacity of up to 19,070. The center has undergone seven major renovations, including the multimillion-dollar upgrade of the ice rink, which now has a dehumidifier system and cooling tower. The venue also has a new LED light system, a high-definition scoreboard featuring four large HD video screens, replacement of televisions to HDTVs and exterior improvements. The KeyBank Center suite level has 80 private luxury suites with exclusive offerings. There are a number of food concessions stands all over the venue offering an array of traditional and specialty food. It has 1,100 parking spaces within the vicinity. Don’t forget to shop for Sabres and Bandits merchandise at the Sabres Store located on the east end of the Pavilion. The center is conveniently located on two major bus routes, and on the NFTA’s Metro Rail rapid transit system. There are a number of hotels within a five-mile radius that offer shuttle services to the venue during game days. Doors are open two hours prior to Sabres games, an hour and a half prior to Bandits games, and one hour prior to concerts.

Spend a day or two before or after your event to explore Buffalo, New York. Its top attractions include the Buffalo City Hall, Buffalo & Erie County Naval and Military Park, Pierce-Arrow Museum, Canalside, Erie Basin Marina, Silo City, Elmwood Village and the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Darwin D. Martin House.
