The Brandt Centre, formerly Regina Agridome, is an indoor arena in Regina, Saskatchewan. Built in 1977, it is the home arena for the WHL's Regina Pats and also hosts concerts, rodeos and the like. It replaced Regina Exhibition Stadium. It was renamed in 2005 when Regina-based agricultural equipment firm Brandt Industries bought its naming rights.

The arena has hosted numerous Tim Hortons Briers and Scotties Tournament of Hearts, as well as the Memorial Cup.

Beginning in 2012, it was home to the Regina Rage of the Lingerie Football League's Canadian division.[5]
