Our Rexall Place
It is safe to say Edmonton is getting a ReVamp!! In the next year we will be experiencing many new and exciting business ventures - New High Rises on the Rise and what's even more exciting a new Arena for our Edmontonians! If you have lived through one winter season in Edmonton you will know all about our Hockey Spirit and how much we support our Oilers! Even if you know nothing about the sport , most will still cheer on and have pride for our beloved Team. It definitely brings the people of our city together ; whether it be grabbing a beer with your co-worker to talk about the game or chatting with your neighbour about last nights game , the Oilers are a great conversation starter. The home of the Oilers and where many people spend hours cheering them on is an Arena located on 7424 118 Ave on the Northside of Northlands . Rexall Place opened up November 10 , 1974 and has gone through various name changes. From the Colliseum to Skyreach centre and finally Rexall this arena is mainly used to host games for the Oilers , the Oil Kings, Edmonton's National Lacrosse League and of course for Concerts! It was decided last year by Edmonton's City Council that our Arena needed a change, the capacity holds 16 800 people and is one of the only arenas not capable of seating 17 000 to enjoy Hockey amongst other events. Not only that, for such a crowded space it can be far too noisy. We will have at least one more season in our Rexall Arena, many triumphs, a handful of good concerts and other exciting future events... but I speak for many when I say I am excited for this new Downtown Arena to come into play!! Check in tomorrow for details of the new Arena!!
Hope everyone having a great Wednesday!
