    Merchandise Store
    The team store carries Saskatoon Blades Team Clothing, the team website has an online store,but not all of the merchandise is not shown at the moment. The team store is very small and can be very crowded at times, so if you plan to buy stuff then go their before the game or during the game.

    Game Day Programs
    they can be had on the main concourse for free,that features both the Home and Visiting Teams, Player Information, stats and articles featuring members of the Saskatoon Blades and a scoresheet to keep track of what happened in the game, and a Saskatoon Blades player profile.

    Concession Booths
    there are many different items to buy at the Concession Booths. Prices are on the high side so if you want to eat at the game be prepared to spend some money. The Western consession is one of the concession booths available if you like everything from Hamburgers,Hotdogs, Corndogs,Fries,Poutine,Onion Rings and Spicy Curley fries, Pepsi Products, Slush Puppies, Popcorn,Just added to the Menu:Hot Onion Scoops and Chicken Wings,and they sell pizza pretzels(my personal favorite),slush puppies and pretzels. So if you like these foods then the Western Concession is the place to be during the intermission or before the game. The Riveira concession is one of the other concession Booths which offers Pizza,Buffalo burgers,Dry ribs,Chicken Wraps,Candy Dishes and many other items. Nestle has 2 ice cream booths where you can buy Ice cream, the Drake Meats stand sells sausages on buns,their is also a Specialty coffee booth were you can buy specialty coffees,Molson sells beer during the games, but the beer is not allowed to leave the building.

    Just so you know there is a Motel 6 within walking distance of the CUC and just a short drive away you will find The Super 8 Motel,the Travelodge and many other hotels. I do not know if any of the hotels have WHL rates,it would be best to ask,and here are some links to hotels that are close to the arena:

    Question

    Where do the local fans meet up before the games? Is there a hot spot?

    I don't know. There are some bars close by and restaurants too. I go to the games by myself so I would not know. Are you thinking of making the trip when the AMS are in town?
