Rogers Place is a multi-use indoor arena located in downtown Edmonton. It is mainly used for ice hockey and as the home of the Edmonton Oilers hockey franchise but is also a venue for concerts, sports and other events. The Oilers Entertainment Group took over the operation of the Rogers Place building in September 2016. The arena was built by PCL Construction and opened in 2016.

The vision of Rogers Place was born when Daryl Katz purchased the Edmonton Oilers in 2008. Daryl stated a desire to not only find the Oilers a new home in downtown Edmonton but to transform the city he grew up in. Through his partnership with the City of Edmonton, Rogers Place was built and Daryl’s vision became a reality through his investment and development of ICE District —the largest mixed-use sports and entertainment district in Canada.

Construction started in March 2014, and the building officially opened on September 8, 2016. The arena was built by PCL Construction and replaced the Northlands Coliseum.
