When Does Leafs Training Camp Start?

Leafs Training Camp Venue

The Maple Leafs training camp venue for 2023 is Ford Performance Centre. The Performance Centre is located in Etobicoke, Toronto, Canada.

The venue was formerly known as Mastercard Centre for Hockey Excellence as Mastercard purchased the venue's naming right for $525,000 a year. It consists of four ice pads.

In 2019, Ford gained its naming rights and revealed it Ford Performance Center. No information has been renamed regarding the amount Ford paid to the arena to acquire the naming right.

The facility is the official home for practice to the Maple Leafs and its AHL Affiliate Toronto Marlies. Moreover, the venue also sports offices of the Hockey Hall of Fame and Hockey Canada.

The building was constructed at a cost of CA$44 million as a joint venture between the Toronto Maple Leafs, the City of Toronto Government, and the Lakeshore Lion Club.

The land of the property belongs to the Toronto District School Board and has been leased for a 50-year term. The facility was opened in 2009 and the Lakeshore Lions Club initially operated the arena.

But in June 2011, it was suffering rising debts, and the City of Toronto Government took control of the property assuming its $43.4 million debt.

Hockey Canada uses the arena for its national teams. Ford offers open, free ice skating in the venue for families on Saturdays from Sep to June.
