Also the Missouri Comets, members of the Major Arena Soccer League (MASL) and Kansas City's only pro indoor soccer club. Artists such as Ariana Grande, Bruno Mars, Kelly Clarkson, Alan Jackson, Chris Tomlin, Zac Brown Band, The Band Perry, Hillsong, The Fray, Chris Young, Lee Brice and many more have performed at the IEC!

We have season tickets to both the Mavericks hockey games and Comets arena soccer. The arena has free parking, nice staff, and every seat has a good view! We have also attended several concerts there. Concessions can tend to be a bit high, but they are at many arenas. We enjoy going there!
