Home to the Ottawa Senators and other professional sports teams, the Scotiabank Place, located on 1000 Palladium Drive in Ottawa, Canada, opened over a decade ago, in 1996. Soon after it opened its doors, the arena became a staple for Canadian athletics and performances. The city of Ottawa had initially built the arena as part of its bid to attain a professional hockey team, aspiring to play in the NHL, National Hockey League. Along with the Toronto Maple Leafs and others, the Senators merged cross-culturally to play in the league in the late 1990s. Because of the popularity of the team, as well as the city of Ottawa’s interest in ice hockey, the stadium has picked to host the 2012 NHL All-Star game, a major accomplishment for fans of the Senators and the city as a whole. Yet hockey is not the only thing that is played in the Ottawan landmark. There have been concerts, basketball games, skating, and other events scheduled in the arena, as well as the Ottawa Sports Hall of Fame, a fitness complex, several restaurants, and business centers. To say that the arena hosts simply sporting events is far from the truth, as it truly represents Ottawan culture.
