MassMutual Center

Thank You! Your rating has been saved.

Upon completion of a physical expansion and " elevation of service", the Springfield Civic Center proudly re-opened its doors as the MassMutual Center. The original Springfield Civic Center opened in 1972 and was owned and operated by the City of Springfield until 1990, when a six-year period of contracted private management began. In February 1996, the SCC returned to city operation. In November 1997, the Massachusetts Legislature authorized funding for a major renovation and enlargement of the facility. Six months later, the Legislature formally transferred ownership of the SCC to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. In April 1998 the Commonwealth turned the building over to the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority (MCCA), which currently owns the facility. In November 2003, the Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company entered into a relationship with the MCCA, earning naming rights for the facility.

In October of 2005 the MCCA contracted out the management of the MassMutual Center to Global Spectrum. Global Spectrum is the fastest growing firm in the public assembly facility management field with more than 80 facilities throughout the United States and Canada. The Philadelphia-based company is part of one of the world's largest sports and entertainment firms Comcast-Spectacor, which also owns the Wells Fargo Center, the Philadelphia Flyers of the National Hockey League, the Philadelphia 76ers of the National Basketball Association, the Philadelphia Phantoms of the American Hockey League, Flyers Skate Zone, a series of community ice skating rinks, Comcast SportsNet, a regional sports programming network, Ovations Food Services, a food and beverage services provider, New Era Tickets, a full-service ticketing and marketing product for public assembly facilities, and Front Row Marketing Services, a commercial rights sales company
