Scotiabank Arena (Air Canada Centre)

40 Bay St, Toronto, Ontario

The Basics

Scotiabank Arena is home turf for the Toronto Maple Leafs (National Hockey League), the Toronto Raptors (National Basketball Association), and the Toronto Rock (National Lacrosse League). It is also one of the country’s premier concert venues, playing host to some of the biggest names in music. It is virtually unheard of for a major Canadian tour not to include at least one—and sometimes three or four—shows at Scotiabank Arena.

Tours of downtown Toronto, including the hop-on hop-off bus, typically feature a stop at the arena, which has been touted as one of the most photographed spots in the city.

From Air Canada Centre to Scotiabank Arena

From when it was built in 1999 until the summer of 2018, Scotiabank Arena was known as the Air Canada Centre (ACC)—a name many locals still use, despite the renaming of the facility. The naming rights agreement was reportedly one of the richest sponsorship deals in North American sports history.
