  • Always wanted this multi-complex to be downtown to revive the city. There are no amenities around the arena, no village, no nothing. Too bad as we could be creating an amazing culture of sports and pa...  more »
  • This is a very nice hockey arena for an OHL team, but it might have been better to build it closer to downtown. Also, the parking needs more exits.  more »
  • parking, service, staff all run efficiently - it's great to have a venue in the city that can accomodate large crowds for concerts, sporting events and shows (we have even seen Cirque du Soleil here) ...  more »

  • Came to the WFCU Centre this May to see the junior hockey Memorial Cup tournament, had a great time here & really liked this newer arena. Has an energetic atmosphere, much going on all over the place, grateful to have had the chance to witness it!
  • My first time here was for Game 3 of the Memorial Cup. It was a great place to see a game. It looks like a good view from any seating area, and lots of parking.
  • Great venue. Hockey, concerts and expos. Smaller arenas for group rentals. Also has rooms for rent (parties or meetings)
  • Beautiful facility. Top notch around. Staff is always very friendly.
  • Great venue. Our seats were good and we could see the entire hockey game no problem. The parking was frustrating though and the shuttle options are not well advertised for out of town folks.
