About the Expansion

The new Wayne Gretzky Sports Centre will be a world class, multi-use facility –  a modern, inviting venue that will be at the forefront for competitive sport, competitions and tournaments –  reinforcing Brantford’s reputation as the Tournament Capital of Ontario. When the Gretzky Centre is fully operational, it is estimated that more than one million people will participate annually in social, recreational and athletic pursuits in the arenas, pools and fitness facilities – enhancing the City’s reputation as a desirable place to visit, live, work and play.

Recognizing the need for upgraded facilities to support the sport, recreation, health and wellness demands of the community, the City is revitalizing the Wayne Gretzky Sports Centre. The redevelopment project addresses the aging infrastructure and crowding currently experienced by sport organizers, teams and recreational users.

The Wayne Gretzky Sports Centre and the City of Brantford share the vision to be a community choice for all, distinguished by our world-class features and amenities. We are proud to offer an active, vibrant place in the heart of our City with myriad opportunities for people to get fit, meet friends, compete and learn new skills.

Inspiring Greatness is the new facility theme and we believe that the Wayne Gretzky Sports Centre will be the place that will provide a legacy of health, fitness and fun for our children, families, seniors and individual athletes. The new Brantford and Area Sports Hall of Recognition, which will be housed in the Gretzky Centre, will pay a fitting tribute to our community’s significant sporting history.

Together we will Inspire Greatness in the Brantford community!
