The arena hosts many hockey games and it's own team, The Soo Greyhounds. Many concerts and shows are also located at the Essar Centre.

Essar staff is fantastic. The box office people will always try and help and are always friendly. The young people they have working in the concession stands are always happy and smiling.

Every seat's a good seat at the Essar centre. Other entertainment venues like concerts also are well done and enjoyed by all. We need more of them though!
