Mattamy Athletic Centre at the Gardens
Ryerson University has transformed Maple Leaf Gardens, one of hockey’s most iconic landmarks, into the new Mattamy Athletic Centre. The largest arena in the country when it was built in the heart of downtown Toronto, Maple Leaf Gardens opened in 1931. In addition to being home to the Toronto Maple Leafs in their glory days, the Gardens also played host to world-class events including the 1972 Summit Series, a Muhammad Ali vs. George Chuvalo boxing match, and performances by the Beatles and the King of rock ‘n’ roll, Elvis Presley. Recently named a National Historic Site of Canada, the Gardens is legendary. Today, the Mattamy Athletic Centre is the home to the Ryerson Rams and will be host to a myriad of other university and community events. Ryerson University will look to add to the history of this iconic venue with the new third floor NHL-sized ice rink with stadium seating for 2,796 fans under the original rafters. The rejuvenated facility also features three corporate suites, an alumni lounge with a capacity of 150, and a modern lobby and concourse area. The second floor features a multi-purpose court with seating for over 1,000, a fitness centre, studios and high-performance gym. The new state-of-the-art Mattamy Athletic Centre is destined to create a legacy for a new generation of Ryerson University students and the local community.
