About MassMutual Center
MassMutual Center is a multi-purpose arena and convention center located in downtown Springfield, in the city’s Metro Center across from Court Square. Formerly Springfield Civic Center, the arena was the largest of its kind in the region when it opened in 1972. The Center is nicknamed “The Nest,” because it’s home to the Springfield Falcons of the American Hockey League. The 100,000 sq.ft., 8,000-seat venue hosts sporting events and competitions, conferences, as well as touring children’s events.
