Default Cost of renting the Raptors arena

The Toronto Star reports:

But making up even eight dates on the ACCs calendar is difficult. Concerts and big events are usually planned more than a year in advance. Prince put together his show at the Air Canada Centre in just two months, but hes the exception. Jay-Z and Kanye West, who just performed at the arena, booked the space about 18 months ago, according to a source at Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment.

The ACC holds 300 events a year: a total of about 90 Leaf and Raptor games (more if either ever makes the post-season), about a dozen Toronto Rock games, 60 concerts and the odd one-night event like the Milos Raonic and Pete Sampras tennis match last week.

Private functions make up the remaining dates. Anyone with $5,000 in their pocket can rent the ice for an hour or, for only $15,000, bring along 250 buddies for a three-hour skating party.
