Binghamton Senators to Show Off Arena Improvements
The Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena in Downtown Binghamton has undergone some major renovations during the summer, and the Binghamton Senators are eager to let fans see those improvements.
The work cost $2.5 million dollars and includes:
- Brand new seats in the arena bowl
- New dasher boards and glass
- Two brand new Zamboni machines
- State of the art LED lighting system
- Concession stand upgrades
- Arena Club renovations
- New outside stairs
- Renovations to the coach's offices
The B-Sens will hold an open house on Saturday September 14th from noon until 3PM and will be giving guided tours of the building. Fans will also be able to select and purchase season tickets. Concession stands will also be open so fans can taste new food options.
The bulk of the funds for the project were secured through a State grant and the rest is coming from the Southern Tier Regional Economic Development Council. American Food and Vending, who own the concession stands, invested over $100,000 in those renovations.
The improvements not only will create a better experience for fans, but could attract bigger and better acts as well. The new LED lighting system is expected to save taxpayers nearly $600,000 over 10 years.
