Interior Savings Centre
The Arena is located on Mark Recchi Way, named after the NHL player whose hometown and home team (Blazers) is in Kamloops.
The Interior Savings Centre was constructed to replace the Kamloops Memorial Arena, built in 1948 and now a historical landmark. Interior Savings Centre opened as the Riverside Coliseum in 1992. The Riverside Coliseum was later called Sport Mart Place due to a sponsorship deal with Sport Mart. The deal between Sport Mart and the City of Kamloops expired during the summer of 2005 and a new sponsorship deal resulted in the commercial name Interior Savings Centre.
In summer/fall of 2005, The Kamloops Blazers Hockey Club, City of Kamloops, and several corporate sponsors constructed new private box seats, upping the capacity by hundreds of seats.
The arena has hosted many concerts Avril Lavigne performed at the arena during her Best Damn Tour and The Black Star Tour. On April 2nd 1999 Shania Twain performed there during her Come On Over World Tour. Other artists include
