1: Ford Hall
Ford Hall is one of the most unique spaces inside Rogers Place. Stretching overtop 104 Ave, Ford Hall provides both functionality and elegance in the design of the Rogers Place. Intended to ease pedestrian traffic, this space also welcomes guests— ticket holders and non ticket holders alike — to meet up and celebrate their favourite team or artist together. This open space also features a large LED board, complimenting the energy and excitement of the community that will soon fill this area.
