This season marks the 11th season the Iowa Wild have called Wells Fargo Arena home.
The Wild continue to have a strong community presence with successful school programs such as Wild About Reading and the Healthy Living Floor Hockey programs, each seeing close to 10,000 participants in the last year. The Wild also have installed 10 community ice rinks in towns around the metro area which are free to use and are open throughout the winter months. There are also a number of community driven theme nights over the course of the season including School Day, Pride Night, Local Heroes Night, and Military Appreciation Night.
The Wild is also deeply entrenched with youth hockey in Central Iowa, partnering with the Des Moines Youth Hockey Association.
