Original construction of the Coliseum building began in 1922. At that time, the primary facility purpose was the exhibition of agricultural products and livestock. As construction phases continued, the Coliseum was the largest structure of its kind in North America. During World War II (1942-1946), the Coliseum was closed to the public as the CNE grounds were being used as a military camp known as #1 Manning Depot. In the 1960s and 1970s, acts including The Doors, The Who, Genesis and Jimmy Hendrix all played at the Coliseum. In 2003, the Coliseum underwent a $38 million renovation project with major additions being added to the outdoor portion of the facility (connecting it to the Enercare Centre). Along with a new roof structure, many modern amenities were added to the arena and surrounding concourse area. Known as Ricoh Coliseum, the building houses numerous shows and concerts throughout the year, including parts of the Canadian National Exhibition, Royal Agricultural Winter Fair and the Toronto Boat Show. Since 2005, Ricoh Coliseum has been the home of the Toronto Marlies, American Hockey League affiliate of the Toronto Maple Leafs, hosting over 40 AHL hockey games each year.
Ricoh Coliseum rarely cancels or postpones events due to inclement weather. Tickets will not be refunded for any event that is held as scheduled. In the rare event of a cancellation or postponement, Ricoh Coliseum, or the promoter or sanctioning body, will announce policies and procedures at that time.
Now is an exciting time to be involved with Ricoh Coliseum and the Toronto Marlies. Internship programs are available to students looking for a hands-on experience in a fast paced, dynamic sporting environment. Internships with Ricoh Coliseum and the Toronto Marlies are offered through educational institutions and prospective applicants should visit MLSE’s Opportunities page for more information.
Fans attending events at Ricoh Coliseum are expected to drink responsibly. Any fan that is intoxicated/impaired and acting in a disorderly manner may be ejected from the facility and will have their tickets revoked with no compensation. Ejected fans may also be subject to arrest and prosecution or loss of other privileges. Fans arriving in an intoxicated/impaired state will be denied entry into the building. Fans should ensure they have a reliable and responsible way to get home safely.
