In addition to being home to the Vancouver Canucks Rogers Arena is one of the most active entertainment venues in North America. Since it opened in September 1995, Rogers Arena has attracted the biggest names in show business to its stage and has welcomed more than 10 million visitors through its doors. In all, Rogers Arena hosts approximately 170 events each year, ranking it among the busiest facilities in North America.
Serving as the primary venue for ice hockey in 2010 at the XXI Winter Olympic Games, Rogers Arena once again was front and center as the eyes of the world focused on watching Canada win Olympic Hockey Gold for the first time ever on home ice.
Rogers Arena's massive new state-of-the-art 160,000 watt L-Acoustics Line Array speaker system and Optocore fiber optic audio distribution systems are the largest of their type in North America.
