Barrie Molson Centre

The Barrie Molson Centre is a 4,195-seat multi-purpose arena in Barrie, Ontario, Canada. The Barrie Molson Centre, also known as the BMC, held its first ever OHL game on December 31, 1995 when the Barrie Colts hosted the Sudbury Wolves. It is home to the Barrie Colts ice hockey team and the former home of the Barrie Lakeshores MLS Lacrosse Team. The Colts played the first half of their inaugural season at the old Dunlop Arena while the BMC was under construction.

The BMC was one of the first modern arenas built in the OHL and was the blueprint from which a lot of the newer arenas were modeled. There is a full concourse so you can walk all the way around the arena. In the west end the concourse goes through the Horsepower Grill (previously Casey's Restaurant). The BMC has a standard four-sided scoreboard and a scoreboard at the west end. There are time of day clocks and shot clocks at each end. The BMC added 4 video screens in the arena bowl for replays and to watch the game. The ice surface at the Barrie Molson Centre is regulation size of 200' by 85'.
