ST. LOUIS – As the St. Louis Blues skate into its second half century, the Electrical Connection is again a prominent sponsor and is helping improve the hockey game experience at Scottrade Center. The 51st Blues season features a new high-tech 40-by-40-foot video cube scoreboard above the rink installed by members of the Electrical Connection. The Electrical Connection is a partnership of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 1and the St. Louis Chapter, National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA).
The Electrical Connection’s sponsorship of the Blues 2017-2018 season consists of advertising, including its logo prominently displayed on the new video scoreboard and the ribbon boards surrounding the arena. It is also supporting the team with radio advertising.

Other improvements include new wheelchair lifts, a curtain system to partition the arena for smaller events, a new sound system and restroom renovations throughout the building.
