Home of the Florida Panthers NHL team, the Broward County Civic Arena was designed and built in only 26 months. The multi-purpose arena opened on time with back to back performances by Celine Dion and Elton John, followed by the Florida Panther’s first NHL game in their new home arena the following day. The Arena is currently the largest in the State of Florida, and second largest in the United States.
