Known by many as The Joe or the JLA, Joe Louis Arena is one of the most famous hockey arenas in the entire world. Located in Detroit Michigan, the arena is the home of the Detroit Red Wings; the city’s NHL team. The venue is one of the few in the country to be an ice-hockey only arena. However, these aren’t the only record-breaking statistics of this arena. The Joe Louis Arena, which was named after the former heavyweight champion Joe Louis, is one of the three current NHL arenas in the United States that doesn’t have a corporate sponsorship. Joe Louis Arena is also the fourth oldest venue in the NHL today as it was built back in 1979. When the arena was constructed at this time it caused a great deal of controversy for its price tag. At the time it cost $57 million to construct.
