Fans Score With New Upgrades at Scotiabank Place

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 1, 2007) - The Ottawa Senators and Scotiabank Place had a short, but busy, summer making significant upgrades and improvements to the sports and entertainment facility. Since September 2006, more than $4 million have been invested to make the fan's experience a better one.

"We understand that the game experience for Senators fans begins long before they arrive at Scotiabank Place," said Cyril Leeder, Senators and Scotiabank Place chief operating officer. "We've made a lot of effort to improve our service to them by delivering season-ticket packages earlier, providing print-at-home options, and increasing website information and access."

New this season for restaurant options at Scotiabank Place are The Ledge Carvery & Bar and Local Heroes Hockey Country Lodge. They join an impressive lineup featuring Club Red, which underwent extensive upgrades in 2006, the Senate Club, Frank Finnigan's Roadhouse and Marshy's Bar-B-Q & Grill. Each of these restaurants now accepts reservations before every game, concert and event by calling 613-599-2582.

"This summer we focused on the fans' dining, concession and entertainment options," added Leeder. "With the addition of popular local restaurants Local Heroes and Lone Star, and the re-branding of the Penalty Box restaurant to The Ledge Carvery & Bar, we know the summer investment program for our fans will be well-received."

New to the concessions on the 100 and 200 levels are two Lone Star Texas Grill food court locations, the 111 Deli & Bar at Section 111 and two additional Chicken Chicken Express locations. They compliment the existing concession lineup, featuring Pizza Pizza, Tim Hortons, Captain's Corner and Rickard's Pub.

In addition to the food and beverage upgrades, Scotiabank Place added another 400 feet of LED ribbon boards to its game entertainment package. Combined with the existing LED technology, Scotiabank Place now features more than 1300 feet of full animation LED ribbon boards providing fans with state-of-the-art game entertainment and advertising. The new technology will feature a new super stats package and shots on goal, bringing fans up-to-date information from around the NHL.

Scotiabank Place also continued its commitment to providing suiteholders with the latest comfort, completely renovating 22 suites.
