Located on the eastern edge of Downtown Vancouver, Rogers Arena is a popular venue offering events and concerts as well as being home to the local National Hockey League team, the Vancouver Canucks. This arena was broadcast worldwide during the 2010 Winter Olympics as the site of the Men's Ice Hockey Games where Canada won its first Gold medal on home ice against the United States on February 28, 2010.

In July 2010, GM Place was renamed to Rogers Arena. The building was officially opened September 21, 1995 measuring 475,000 square feet and seating over 18,000 people in its amphitheatre-like setting.

Rogers Arena is home to the Vancouver Canucks, the City's National Hockey League team. Thousands of fans pack the arena during the hockey season to cheer on the Canucks and during the off-season it has hosted concerts by the Spice Girls, Bryan Adams, Janet Jackson, AC/DC, Metallica, Kiss and many more as well as events such as the World Skating Championships and a ceremonial puck dropping by Queen Elizabeth II. Individuals can also take guided tours of Rogers Arena for a behind the scenes experience to check out the arena, ice, changing rooms and the operations that make every event memorable.

During the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games, Rogers Arena hosted the Mens Ice Hockey events and team Canada won its first Olympic Gold on home ice February 28th which caused mass celebrations across Canada. Due to corporate sponsoring rules on venues it was temporarily renamed Canada Hockey Place for the duration of the Olympic Games.

One of Vancouver's most beloved venues, Rogers Arena is somewhere to explore, enjoy and watch concerts and shows as well as cheer on the City's favourite sports team as they thrash the competition.
