KeyArena confirmed for renovations by next year

KeyArena which is home to Dota2’s International is all set for renovations in the upcoming year. The news has been confirmed as the venue is looking to attract NHL and NBA teams to the city.

As per sources;

The Seattle City Council on Monday approved a memorandum of understanding with Los Angeles-based Oak View Group to privately finance a roughly $600 million remodel that would nearly double the square footage of KeyArena. The facility housed the NBA’s SuperSonics until they relocated to Oklahoma City and became the Thunder.

This is an attempt to rebrand Seattle as a sports city and be a prominent name on the NHL/NBA scene
