General

Angel of the Winds Arena is a $83.3 million multi-purpose complex, in Everett, Washington, designed and developed by the Everett Public Facilities District. The Everett Events Center opened in October 2003. Naming rights were sold to Comcast in 2007, who renamed the arena to Comcast Arena at Everett. In 2014, the name was changed to Xfinity Arena, named after the Xfinity brand that was adopted by the Comcast Cable division. In 2017, the Angel of the Winds casino resort signed a ten-year $3.4 million contract to become the naming sponsor.

The 10,000-seat venue is home to the Western Hockey League's Everett Silvertips and the Tilted Thunder Rail Birds. In the past, the arena hosted the National Lacrosse League's Washington Stealth and the Indoor Football League's Everett Raptors. Other former tenants include the International Basketball League's Everett Explosion and the NIFL's Everett Hawks.

The arena has also hosted a variety of concerts and other types of performances. A few events that have showcased at Xfinity Arena at Everett include Ringling Brothers Circus, moto cross, and family shows such as Disney on Ice, Harlem Globetrotters, Sesame Street Live and a myriad of others.

The venue served as the host for 2008 Skate America, a three-day ice-skating championship featuring world class skaters. The events were both nationally and internationally televised on NBC. It was the first event of six in the 2008-2009 ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating, a senior-level international invitational competition. This was Skate America's largest attendance ever recorded in its history.
