New seats, cupholders among ‘fan-centric’ improvements coming to Rogers Arena

Canucks fans at Rogers Arena will soon have a new place to put their drink while they cheer.

The cupholders, destined to be a feature on the new, custom-designed black seats that will fill the upper and lower bowls, are part of the third phase of the Rogers Arena building improvement plan.

Set to be completed over the next two summers, the $150 million investment will include a number of upgrades to the arena, with the focus of the latest phase being “fan-facing improvements,” according to a Monday announcement by the Canucks.

“Last August, ownership committed to replacing all seats in the building, and we confirm that we are proceeding with that investment,” said Michael Doyle, business operations president for Canucks Sports & Entertainment.

“The project… is something our members and fans have been requesting for some time, and we understand its importance. With our new seating and our new state-of-the-art videoboard installed, when you step into the Rogers Arena bowl, it will feel like you are in a new building.”

Other improvements being implemented this phase include the installation of a new digital screen at the concourse level to help fans navigate the arena and locate snacks or drinks. Toyota Plaza will also be the focus of some enhancements, the Canucks add, to make it more “fan-centric.”

For fans wanting to socialize more while watching a game, the sports organization says they will benefit from some improvements to Level 400.

Phase two of the improvement plan began in summer 2023 and featured a new videoboard, in-bowl digital screens, a better player experience, the launch of the Well Health Presidents Club, and new boards and glass at ice-level.

Rogers Arena opened in September 1995 and has more than two million visitors annually.
