Fill the Stands with the Future

The Next Century Game will celebrate the future of the team and the next generation of fans! To help us celebrate, we encourage ticketholders to bring a young fan with them to the game.

Toronto Arenas

To mark this historic occasion, the team will be wearing commemorative Toronto Arenas uniforms during the game inspired by those worn by our franchise's original namesake - the Arenas.

The Arenas was the club's name at inception into the NHL and remained so for the first two seasons of existence before transitioning to the St. Pats and later the Maple Leafs.

You can get your own Toronto Arenas gear at the Toronto Maple Leafs Store powered by Real Sports Apparel. Available while supplies last.
