What is the biggest NHL arena?

The Bell Centre Montreal Canadiens, Bell Centre With a capacity of over 21,000 for hockey games, the Bell Centre is also the NHL's largest venue. It is located in downtown Montreal, so there are lots of surrounding restaurants and hotels to enjoy before the games.

The arena opened in 1996, just four years after the Canadiens moved into their new home, the Olympic Stadium. The original plan was to have a dome over the stadium, but due to cost concerns that idea was scrapped early on.

In addition to being the home of the Canadiens, the Bell Centre has also hosted NBA games, international soccer matches, and many more. It is also used by local sports teams like the Montreal Expos baseball team and the Montreal Alouettes football team.

Which NHL team has the most seats?

Montreal Canadiens - Bell Centre - 21,273 It's only fitting that the club with the most Stanley Cups plays in the National Hockey League's largest arena, which seats over 21,000 people. The Canadiens have won a record 11 championships, more than any other team.

Canadiens president and general manager Pierre Boivin said in 2010 that it costs about $15 million to rent the centre for a game. The team reports revenues of about $160 million.

The Montreal Canadians, now called the Canadiens, were founded in 1909 by John McCallum who wanted a team that did not belong to a big business owner or group of owners. He created a franchise that was owned by the city itself. The original team colors were red and white; however, these were changed to blue and white in 1913.

In 1917, after winning their first Stanley Cup title, the Canadiens played a game against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden. The crowd was so large that they could not fit everyone into the stadium; thus, part of the game took place on a frozen Lake Michigan. This is considered by many to be the first "home" game ever played by an NHL team.
