Scotiabank Arena Unveils $350M Renovation


Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment (MLSE) has unveiled a $350-million investment plan for the Scotiabank Arena Venue Reimagination project.

The comprehensive multi-phase renovations will feature capital improvements to almost all areas within the venue including concourses, suites, premium clubs, retail spaces, food and beverage offerings, state-of-the-art technological innovations and more.

“For 25 years, Scotiabank Arena has been the heartbeat of this city and has established itself as one of the top venues in the world, hosting many of the biggest events in sports and entertainment and creating countless memories,” said Cynthia Devine, interim president & CEO, MLSE. “This investment by MLSE’s owners is another important example of their commitment to further building on Scotiabank Arena’s global reputation as well as a commitment to our teams, employees, and most importantly, to our fans.”

Scotiabank Arena underwent extensive renovations this summer to remodel the venue’s 200 Level Mastercard Executive Suites level along with state-of-the-art technology upgrades in the concourses for a pilot program designed to revolutionize fans’ food and beverage experience.

In 2024, the 100-level concourse is set for a complete makeover featuring dynamic screens and modernized grab-and-go style markets. The project also includes an expansion of Real Sports Apparel, a refreshed Hot Stove restaurant, and the introduction of an all-new Tunnel Club on the event level, providing an exclusive view of players entering the bowl from the locker room.

Future phases will include enhancements to additional fan-facing spaces as well as back-of-house artist and athlete areas to continue to position Scotiabank Arena as a top-ranked live events venue. Some of the upcoming venue updates include a complete design reinvigoration of the 300 Level concourse in line with 100 Level design, the addition of dedicated artist and talent spaces for a premium backstage experience and more improvements to be announced at a later date.

The Scotiabank Arena Venue Reimagination project is being completed in collaboration with Brisbin, Brook, Beynon Architects, DesignAgency, owner’s representative firm CAA ICON and PCL Construction. Brisbin, Brook, Beynon Architects and PCL Construction originally led the design and construction of the venue which opened in February 1999.
