Scotiabank Arena Events

Nary a hockey fan in the world could fail to shed a tear when Canadian folk music legend Stompin’ Tom Connors walked onto center ice with his guitar to sing “The Hockey Song” at the final game played at the old Maple Leaf Gardens on February 13, 1999. The Gardens was among the most storied of North American sports arenas as home to the NHL’s Toronto Maple Leafs (one of hockey’s Original Six) for 68 years, witnessing all of the franchise’s 13 Stanley Cup triumphs. All Maple Leafs regular season and playoff home games now take place at the modern Scotiabank Arena, along with every home game played by the NBA’s Toronto Raptors throughout the season. The Raptors thrilled Toronto fans when they won the NBA Championship (Canada’s first and only NBA title) in 2019, while the Maple Leafs still draw huge crowds despite a title drought lasting back to 1967. The venue also hosts many concerts and other major events. Hungry visitors will find plenty to eat at Scotiabank Arena with concessions offering quick tasty bites to fancier spots offering gourmet food and beverages (the venue even employs a wine sommelier!). Shoppers will also find plenty of team and event merchandise on sale at Scotiabank Arena.
