It was the home of the Detroit Pistons of the National Basketball Association and was the home of the Detroit Vipers of the International Hockey League from 1994 to 2001. As well, it has served as the venue for various NCAA hockey games.
It was opened in 1988 and has a hockey capacity of over 20,800.
It was announced on August 24, 2017 that the arena would be closing indefinitely on September 23,2017.

The facility may end up being redeveloped for either technology or research use.
