The steel roof was designed with a flat profile, giving it the appearance of an airplane hangar and provides enhanced internal acoustics.

They will then have to present the credit card used to purchase the tickets on entry the day of the event.

On those occasions, fans who are standing are asked to continue being respectful to others around them and to only stand immediately in front of their designated seat. Standing on seats or any other building structure is not permitted. Those who choose to do so will be subject to ejection without a refund.

For family events, a designated area is set up on the concourse near Gate 6 where strollers may be checked. At all other times, strollers may be checked at Fan Services.

Team Up Green

Scotiabank Arena has created "Team Up Green," a committee dedicated to reducing Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment Ltd.'s environmental footprint. MLSE has identified three (3) main areas where it can most affect its impact on the environment: energy, waste and water.

• Reducing Scotiabank Arena's carbon footprint by 30 percent; 
• Diverting 100 percent of our waste material from landfills and to maximize organic and recycling streams; 
• Reducing energy use by 30 percent by installing energy efficient fixtures and systems; 
• Becoming a leader in environmental practices through fan engagement and best practices.
