“While many fans seemingly entered a stage of mourning when the team left the Joe, I was stoked. The LCA is a state-of-the-art entertainment venue and a great for children, adults (bars and drink options), and those needing accessibility options to access and experience the game. I’ve been to over 40 arenas and stadiums in pro sports and the LCA and Truist Park (Atlanta Braves) rank above the rest on this all-around criteria.”
“Replacing the atmosphere of The Joe is hard, but I think the LCA is on its way to getting to that point once the Red Wings develop a better team that will draw the crowds.”
