The Montreal Canadiens and the city of Brossard partnered in building the Bell Sports Complex, a 30-million Canadian dollar recreational facility that features two NHL-sized rinks with a capacity of 800 seats, as well as dressing rooms, an indoor soccer field (built to FIFA specifications) and a fitness centre. It is open to the general public and was built adjacent to the Quartier DIX30 shopping complex. It primarily serves as the practice facility for the Canadiens, but is also the home of other sports-related groups, such as Foot-Total, a soccer academy. The center is now named Complexe Sportif Bell (Bell Sports Complex). On February 25, 2008 the arena, under construction, collapsed.
