The name of this arena may be confusing, but do your best to not mix it up with the Scotiabank Saddledome. The design of this arena is certainly not as unique, but as you can see they contain the same sponsor.

What does make this arena more unique in its own right is that it is located right on the lake of Ontario. In addition to its special spot on the lake and it being host to the Maple Leafs, this arena is also host to the only NBA team in Canada, the Toronto Raptors. Even besides these two major sports teams, the arena is host to many other minor league sports teams that make it one of the best arenas for hosting sporting events in all of Canada. What also makes the arena special is that it is one of the only arenas that is owned by the same group that owns the sports teams that play in the arena. This may not make sense at first, but basically the owner of the arena also owns the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Toronto Raptors.

Besides sports specifically, the arena is still popular in its own right being ranked as the 13th busiest arena in the world in 2018. It was also ranked as the busiest arena in Canada that year. Not related to events inside of the arena, it hosts the title of the most photographed location in the country, even topping the popularity of Niagara Falls and other locations in the country. The arena is also one of the first to host video game competitions since the world has started to shift towards e sports. Lastly, as with the other Canadien arenas they do a good job of being located next to public transportation to allow the maximum number of people at each event.
