The Air Canada Centre is a multi-purpose indoor sporting arena located on Bay Street in downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

The arena is popularly known as the ACC or the Hangar (the latter nickname coming from its sponsorship by Air Canada).

It is the home of the Toronto Maple Leafs of the National Hockey League (NHL), the Toronto Raptors of the National Basketball Association (NBA), and the Toronto Rock of the National Lacrosse League (NLL).

It was also home to the Toronto Phantoms of the Arena Football League (AFL) during their brief existence.

The ACC is the 11th busiest arena in the world.

From its initial design to completion, it revolutionized many concepts now included in new arenas and stadiums such as luxury suites accessible on the ground floor, splitting the main scoreboard into several sections, rotating all sponsor signage in the bowl at once (to allow dominant messaging), and multiple restaurants in and out of the main arena bowl view.

The arena is owned by Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment Ltd., the same group that owns both the Leafs and Raptors, and is 665,000 square feet (62,000 m²) in size. Air Canada Centre is connected to Union Station and the underground pedestrian PATH system, providing easy access to public transportation (TTC's Union subway station and GO Transit) for fans attending events. There are also 13,000 parking spaces within immediate walking distance.
