Interior Savings Centre Canada, Kamloops

Interior Savings Centre

The Sandman Centre is a 5,464-seat multi-purpose arena in Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada. It is home to the Kamloops Blazers Ice hockey team.

The Arena is located on Mark Recchi Way, named after the NHL player whose hometown and home team (Blazers) is in Kamloops.

The Sandman Centre was constructed to replace the Kamloops Memorial Arena, built in 1948 and now a historical landmark. The Sandman Centre opened as the Riverside Coliseum in 1992. The Riverside Coliseum was later called Sport Mart Place due to a sponsorship deal with Sport Mart. The deal between Sport Mart and the City of Kamloops expired during the summer of 2005 and a new sponsorship deal resulted in the commercial name Interior Savings Centre.

In summer/fall of 2005, The Kamloops Blazers Hockey Club, City of Kamloops, and several corporate sponsors constructed new private box seats, upping the capacity by hundreds of seats.
