The Mattamy Athletic Centre in what was once Maple Leaf Gardens is home to the Ryerson Rams.

It is also the host venue for basketball and wheelchair basketball in this summer’s Pan Am / Parapan Am Games, during which it will be known as the Ryerson Athletic Centre.

Players from across the Americas will be playing in the venue that hosted its first NBA game on Nov. 1, 1946.

Renovation work on the venue, located at Church and Carlton streets, started in December 2009 and was completed in 2012.
