The ACC was not built to replace Maple Leaf Gardens. It was built to be a home for the Toronto Raptors. It only became a hockey facility after MLSE bought the raptors. User:CorSter, 08/01/06


Why is it important to note WWE events?

The WWE section seems rather irrelevant, that info would seem to belong in a Randy Orton or SummerSlam article. I don't see much of a connection with the arena, if an attendance record or something was set by the event it would make more sense. I'm going to delete it, if anyone disagrees we can discuss it.--BoyoJonesJr 20:16, 21 May 2006 (UTC) this dude is making it sound like its only for basketball wheres the hockey picture?

We decided that WWE events would be removed from this article. Johnny Au (talk/contributions) 02:57, 8 August 2016 (UTC)
Bringing this topic back up: Should we keep Sammy Maggio (talk · contribs)'s edit that added WWE stuff? It even has a reference to the ACC's website stating this. Johnny Au (talk/contributions) 13:39, 4 November 2016 (UTC)
Looks like consensus changed. The WWE is staying for good. Johnny Au (talk/contributions) 03:44, 16 November 2016 (UTC)

seating capacity[edit]

do we know what it is? it's not stated in the article right? Chensiyuan 16:03, 23 December 2006 (UTC)

First Section[edit]

Near the end of the first section reads somewhat like an advertisement, mostly about the ACC's restaurant locations. AndrewMcinally (talk) 18:58, 13 June 2008 (UTC)

Added {{advert}} template to the section in question. Johnny Au (talk/contributions) 20:51, 13 June 2008 (UTC)


one sentence says "The arena is popularly known as "the ACC" or "the Hangar" (the latter nickname coming from its sponsorship by Canada's largest airline, Air Canada)." if I'm not mistaken this is only part of the reason for it's nickname, as in my opinion it looks a bit like a Hangar, and I believe that this might be part of the reason for it's nickname being "The Hangar".

Indiscriminate list of musicians in the Concerts section[edit]

This section is a mess! I originally put in a note not to put an indiscriminate list of musicians in the Concerts section. Apparently, many users did not read it and added them in anyways. They also have no verification! I added the cleanup tag in that section as well. Johnny Au (talk/contributions) 19:02, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

I was bold to remove it and placed tags on it. Johnny Au (talk/contributions) 03:04, 26 January 2012 (UTC)


Need to add a picture of the crowd in Maple Leafs Square/Raptors Square. It's becoming a major reputation for the team in the playoffs. Maybe even create a new section. — Preceding unsigned comment added by HighSchoolMusical (talkcontribs) 02:19, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

Timeline template[edit]

See here: Talk:Rogers Centre#Timeline template

It would be great to introduce it here as well (but with each entry having a reliable source). Johnny Au (talk/contributions) 00:21, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

WWE: Yea or Nay?[edit]

@Sammy Maggio: and @Sportsfan 1234:

Should WWE be included in the Air Canada Centre article? Johnny Au (talk/contributions) 17:33, 5 December 2016 (UTC)

I noticed it got removed the other day and I took exception to it, but I didn't do anything. I vote Yea. Sammy Maggio 17:35, 5 December 2016 (UTC)

I don't. These articles should left to legitimate regular use tenants and others like the WWE should be kept as "entertainment" and nothing more. Sportsfan 1234 (talk) 18:11, 5 December 2016 (UTC)
I'm thinking of a compromise solution: for temporary tenants such as WWE, concerts, political conventions, and video game competitions (and even state funerals), they can be put in a separate section away from the primary tenants (ice hockey, basketball, and lacrosse).
