I have seen everything from speakers to music to hockey and basketball at this place. It adjust to all of them. Even the worst seats are ok. And while not intimate, 15,000 certainly feels different than 21,000. I find the concessions lacking variety and the...More

it was very clean and all of the staff were very nice. This is a relatively small arena so I assume there probably aren't any bad seats. The stairs down to the 100 level seats are very shallow so you're basically marching when you walk...More

A well appointed arena. Intimate seating. Bowl provides great seats throughout. Seating is a little tight. Atmosphere is great, especially when the Jets are winning. Easy access from any direction as the rink is in the heart of downtown. Food and drink is average and...More

Although many locals seem to lament the spending of public dollars on an arena that brought Canada's favorite sport back to Manitoba the Bell MTS Place nonetheless offers a great gameday experience from the clean concourses to on-ice product and seating. Having visited all but...More

Great experience for hockey games. Sound is very good for concerts. Attending during nhl playoffs is an crazy experience that is even better in person than on tv.

My husband and I are from the States & weren't familiar with this venue. We were concerned the acoustics would be not so great, considering it's a hockey arena. We discovered there was no need to be concerned when the sound for the Paul McCartney...More

Depends on the concert, amount of bands, if they start on time and how many encores they have. Check website of band you are seeing, they will have previous concerts play list and info to give you a better idea.
