History of The Air Canada Centre
The Toronto Raptors under an initial ownership group headed by Canadian businessman John Bitove initially started construction on the Air Canada Centre. The groundbreaking on the arena was performed in March of 1997. While in construction the stadium was purchased by Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment Ltd,
which brought in the Toronto Maple Leafs who at the time were actively seeking a new home. Since the stadium was being built to host an NBA arena, MLSE ordered major modifications to the original design such that the arena becomes more suitable for hockey.
Upon completion, Air Canada purchased the naming rights to the arena for $30 million over 20 years.
The stadium stands 15 stories and is located on Bay Street. It’s connected to the Path network, an underground pedestrian walkway, which at the time of this posting is the World’s largest underground shopping complex with 4 million square feet of retail space.
The first event to take place in the Air Canada Centre was a Toronto Maple Leafs game, which took place on February 20, 1999. The following night the Toronto Raptors played their first game. The Arena proudly hosted the 2000 NHL All-Star Game and the championship game of the 2004 World Cup of Hockey!
