For Every Sports Fan, There’s a Sports Venue

Make it all about sports when you’re in Ontario. Fancy a basketball or hockey game? Head to downtown Toronto and cheer for the NBA’s Toronto Raptors or the NHL’s Toronto Maple Leafs. Enjoy a host of year-round concerts, conventions, and other events at the massive Air Canada Centre.

Another great spot to see a hockey game is the Canadian Tire Center; one of the great hockey arenas in the world and home of the NHL’s Ottawa Senators.

For an outdoor ball game, take a ride out to The Exhibition Place in Toronto and see BMO Field, where Major League Soccer’s Toronto FC and the CFL’s Toronto Argonauts call home. Do less watching and more doing. Get yourself out to Brantford and go to the Wayne Gretzky Sports Center. Between swimming pools, hockey arenas, exercise rooms, fitness classes, and having the Great One’s name on it, what more could you ask for?
