The XL Center, formerly known as the Hartford Civic Center, is a sports and convention complex located in Hartford, Connecticut, USA, owned by the City of Hartford and operated by Northland Investment Corporation/Anschutz Entertainment Group under contract with the Connecticut Development Authority (CDA). The arena is ranked the 28th largest among college basketball arenas. Originally located adjacent to a shopping mall (Civic Center Mall, which was demolished in 2004), it was originally built in 1975 and consists of two facilities: the Veterans Memorial Coliseum and the Exhibition Center.

In December 2007, the arena’s naming rights were sold to XL Capital insurance company.

The XL Center has held many notable concerts including Van Halen, U2, Brooks & Dunn, Reba, Elton John, Fleetwood Mac, Journey, The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd (two shows on its A Momentary Lapse of Reason tour in 1987 substituting for the Boston Garden which the band chose not to play after their 1977 tour), Tina Turner, Michael Jackson, Shania Twain, Nine Inch Nails, Stevie Nicks & Phish. The Civic Center is the first stop on Bruce Springsteen’s 2007 Magic tour, and it is also one of the few North American venues for the Genesis 2007 reunion tour.
