About the Rexall Place
The Rexall Place is arena in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada that has been a staple in the NHL for decades. Rexall Place was also formerly known as Edmonton Coliseum, Northlands Coliseum, and Skyreach Centre. In fact, many locals of the area still call this arena by one of its old names.
Rexall Place is currently home to three full time tenants. They include the Edmonton Oilers of the NHL, the Edmonton Rush of the NLL, and the Edmonton Oil Kings of the WHL. In the past several other professional sports teams have also played their homes games inside Rexall Place. Although Rexall Place is one of the smaller venues in the NHL, it sure does have a lot to offer. Opposing teams rank the ice at this arena among the best in the league. And when it comes to noise, the home fans always make it difficult on visitors.
Rexall Place was used to host games in the 1981 and 1984 Canada Cup hockey tournaments, including Game 2 of the 1984 finals between Canada and Sweden.
The Rexall Place was also the venue site for several Commonwealth Games sports in 1978 and part of Universiade (the World University Games) in 1983. Some of the annual events held at the Rexall Place include the Canadian Finals Rodeo and the Christian Conference, YC Alberta .
Since this is one of the older venues, Rexall Place does not hold nearly as many people for sporting events. In fact, only 16,900 fans can fit into this indoor arena for hockey games. While this may seem like a lot, when compared to more modern arenas it is far from it. For concerts, Rexall Place is even smaller and can only fit approximately 13,000 fans.
Eventhough the Rexall is old and may be a bit outdated, when an event happens here the crowd never leaves home unhappy!
