The Lander's Center, formerly the DeSoto Civic Center, is an 8,400-seat multi-purpose arena in Southaven, Mississippi. It was built in 2000. It is home to the Mississippi RiverKings, a team in the Southern Professional Hockey League.
It also is used as a concert venue, boxing arena and for ice shows and circuses. The Mid-South Fair was held at the Lander's Center in September 2009, its first year outside of Memphis, Tennessee. The Lander's Center is a temporary host to the fair until its new permanent fairgrounds near Tunica Resorts is completed.
The Figure Skating Club of Memphis uses the ice rink during the hockey season to provide Learn to Skate clinics, USFSA Basic Skills Classes, and freestyles for area figure skaters. Memphis Youth Hockey also offers Learn to Skate classes and youth ice hockey through the Civic Center.
In June 2008, the Lander's Center hosted TNA Slammiversary.
In December 2011, Memphis-based Lander's Auto Group purchased the naming rights. The name was changed to the Lander's Center. The arena will still serve the same purpose that the DCC served.
