“First class venue”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

I attended UFC 161 here and I was very impressed with the venue. Some arenas can feel extremely crowded when you jam 15,000 people inside but I never felt that way here. It was a sold out show and the crowd was loud! My seat was in the balcony but the view was surprisingly good. Beer is overpriced but that is to be expected at an arena. The arena is located in heart of downtown so it's easy to get to.

“A Promise Broken”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Ill-conceived location that has done little to improve the downtown. It brings in people...in cars...that do little but increase traffic problems to the core area. This facility replaced the once noble Eaton's Department Store, and that edifice ought to have been maintained as anything rather than construct this travesty.

“Cool venue.”
Reviewed April 17, 2013 via mobile

I have been here for several concerts and hockey games over the years and found the best place to be is either on the floor and level 100. Level 200 is decent for hockey games. Level 300 is pretty poor for the view. But is better then the old hockey arena.

Price wise for jets games concessions are pretty bad. Price for a beer is almost equal to a case of beer. I would prefer to go for drinks before a concert or a hockey game.

“Top-notch arena”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

MTS Centre is really an all around great facility. Easy access from all sides of the building. Ample parking is available. Lots of options for food and beverage. Good sound at concerts. There really is no bad seat in this building. The atmosphere during Jets games in incredible. A must-do when in Winnipeg.

“Concerts concerts concerts”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Great place now to go and see concerts. Appreciate that they seem to have more women's washrooms than the old place. Always find the sound quite good. Also never seem to have trouble finding parking! Which is a bonus.
