Review by: Jordan Falconer -- Apr 28, 2017

Amongst all of these concerts and other events, the MTS Centre’s main tenants for hockey season are the NHL’s Manitoba Moose and the NHL’s Winnipeg Jets. Hosting two professional hockey teams, True North Sports and Entertainment has continued to put money back into the building to improve the fan experience. During the summer of 2016 another significant round of renovations were completed to go with the previous years’ $12 million improvements. The latest additions aim to improve the fans’ experience from their seats. Brand new seats were installed in the entire arena. True North also removed the old wire mesh and metal post handrails and replaced them with seamless glass to improve sightlines. These renovations provided approximately 1,500 seats with a more comfortable seat to enjoy the game.

As per the Calgary Herald, this week City Council voted 12-3 in favour of keeping the CalgaryNEXT project alive. While the consensus seems to be that the Calgary Sports and Entertainment Corporation's grand plan for a new multi-purpose facility on the west side of downtown is unfeasible, City Council does appear willing to consider the possibility of locating the structure in Victoria Park, the neighborhood just north of the Flames' current home, the Scotiabank Saddledome.
