The Maple Leaf Gardens, now known as the Mattamy Athletic Centre, has historically been referred to as "Canada's Cathedral of Hockey" since its doors have opened in November 12, 1931. Now named the Mattamy Athletic Centre, features a full-sized ice rink that can accommodate 2,539 seated fans, a multi-purpose court for basketball and volleyball, multiple studios, and a high-performance gym. The revitalization of the Gardens promises to bring the community back into its historic home, and serves the Ryerson Rams with as much spirit and success as the many great teams before them. Prominently set in the heart of Toronto.

"It was another record-breaking year for Ryerson Rams, and Spectra played an important role in our success. The Mattamy Athletic Centre (MAC) remains a premier athletic and event faculty in Canada, and the remarkable relationship between Spectra and Ryerson Athletics and Recreation continues to set the standard for the synergy that can exist with a venue partner." -Director Athletics Ryerson University

"I'm writing to extend my warmest congratulations to the entire committee for hosting a wonderfully successful U Sports Women's Basketball National Championship. It was an honour for Ryerson to host the event and thanks to your professionalism, commitment and willingness to go above and beyond, the tournament went off seamlessly and did the Mattamy Athletic Centre and all of us proud. I appreciate all of your hard work and effort. You have set the bar high for the next hosts of this great tournament. Thank you. And I want to extend special congratulations to Carly Clarke for coaching the Ryerson's Women's Basketball team to another successful season. Go Rams!" - Mohamed Lachemi, President, Ryerson University
