The Honda Center, home to the 2006-07 Stanley Cup champions, the Anaheim Ducks, opened its doors on June 19th, 1993 after approximately two and a half years of construction at the cost of $123 million. Honda took over the naming rights in 2006 and have since renewed through 2030. The arena has been the Ducks’ home ice since their founding in 1993. The Honda Center kicked off it’s tenure as an NHL venue and the Ducks’ franchise with a $450,000 pre-game show.
When founded, the team was owned by the Walt Disney Company and named the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim, after the 1992 film. The team was sold and the name was shortened prior to the 2006-07 season. Coincidentally, the Ducks won their single Stanley Cup that year. The Ducks have had other runs at glory during their history, winning six Division titles along the way. They have developed rivalries with their nearby neighbor the Los Angeles Kings, as well as the San Jose Sharks, as two other California-based teams.
