Tom Cantone, President of Sports & Entertainment for Mohegan Gaming Entertainment (MGE) Worldwide provided us with a major exclusive … live, on-the-air today on WPG Talk Radio’s “Hurley in the Morning” program.

Pollstar Magazine, which has long been called “The Bible” of the entertainment industry rates entertainment venues in America and around the world.

Their coveted ratings are poised to be released.

We can confirm to you now … directly from Tom Cantone … that The Mohegan Sun Arena has earned the top spot as the # 1 entertainment arena in America … for a venue size between 5,000 to 10,000 seats.

It doesn’t end there. Pollstar Magazine also rates all venues, regardless of arena size.

For the first time ever, The Mohegan Sun Arena has earned a Top 10 ranking world-wide.

“This is a major team win for Mohegan Sun and will live on as a mile stone for many years to come,” said Cantone.

As Cantone has done throughout his entire career, he always says “we” and never “me.” It’s always about the team and not accepting any platitudes for himself.

However, earlier this year, Cantone won a prestigious national award as “Innovator of the Year,” for the “bubble” that he successfully achieved with Viacom and other working partners.

There was a time during the COVID-19 pandemic when the only live sports or entertainment events taking place in all America, was live from the Mohegan Sun Arena.

It was an amazing feat that required intricate safety protocols to be developed that never existed before in order to be able to safely stage live, mega events, once more.
