Property Summary
is an 8,300-seat multi-purpose arena located in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, United States, managed by SMG. Built in 1998 due to the instrumental work of Pennsylvania Governor Robert P. Casey, Sr. and his successor, Tom Ridge. On January 20, 2010, the arena became Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza, as part of a 10-year naming rights contract with the Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs racetrack and casino.[9] It has been home to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, of the AHL since 1999, and the former home of the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Pioneers, of the AF2 League. In January 2012 it became home to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Shamrocks of the North American Lacrosse League. The Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza has been recognized by many entertainment magazines as one of the best in the country for arenas under 10,000 in capacity, especially for its attendance and ease of show setup and teardown.[citation needed] The Penguins hold the American Hockey League record for most sellouts in a season, selling out all 40 home games in 2002–03 and 2003–04,[citation needed] and ran a streak of 90 consecutive sellouts between March 2002 and October 2004, and 54 from December 2000 to February 2002.[10] read more
