Lineups to buy a beer or use the washroom are going to be a lot shorter on the 300 level of the MTS Centre this hockey season.
True North Sports & Entertainment spent $6 million this summer upgrading the building, highlighted by the addition of two new restaurant/lounge areas, The Tower and Heroes, as well as an expanded Observation Deck Bar & Buffet.
Kevin Donnelly, senior vice-president at True North, said the investment was made to coincide with the renewal of season ticket holders on the 300 level following the completion of the 2013-14 season.
It’s hoped the 65 per cent increase in washroom capacity for the upper deck – men’s fixtures increased from 36 to 75 while women’s were upped from 44 to 57 – will significantly reduce arguably the main complaint on the 300 level.
