Hy Vee Arena, formerly known as Kemper Arena, is situated in Kansas City, Missouri. The stadium has been named in honour of R. Crosby Kemper Sr. who was a member of the Kemper Financial clan. He donated $3.2 million from his estate as a contribution for the construction of the stadium and hence the construction work for the Kemper Arena commenced on 17th July 1972 in which an estimated amount of $23 million was spent. It was opened to the spectators after two years (in 1974). The chief architect who designed the stadium was Helmut Jahn. The arena had been listed in the National Register of Historic Places in the year 2016 to recognize the revolutionary design. It was renamed as "Mosaic Arena" as a part of an agreement to turn it into a regional amateur sports facility in 2017. Hy Vee Arena is owned by Foutch Brothers LLC and operated by Anschutz Entertainment Group.
