Videotron Centre tickets - A new Venue
The Videotron Centre (French: Centre Vidéotron) is an indoor arena currently under construction in Quebec City, Quebec. The 18,259-seat arena will replace the Colisée Pepsi as Quebec City's primary venue for indoor events (although the Colisée will continue to operate as a secondary venue). The new arena will primarily be used for ice hockey, and has been prospected as the potential venue for a new or re-located National Hockey League team in Quebec City, and to host hockey as part of a Winter Olympic Games bid.

A groundbreaking ceremony for the new arena was held on September 3, 2012, attended by then-Quebecor Chairman Pierre-Karl Péladeau, then-Premier of Quebec Jean Charest, and former Quebec Nordiques players Michel Goulet, Peter Stastny and Alain Côté. Arena construction began on September 10, 2012.
The arena will cost $400 million; 50% of the cost will be covered by the city and province each. On March 1, 2011 Quebecor entered into an agreement to acquire management rights to the new arena, a deal expected to be between $33 million and $63 million up front, plus between $3.15 million and $5 million in annual rent. The value of the deal will increase if an NHL franchise moves into the arena; Quebecor has actively backed an expansion franchise for Quebec City. This arrangement was made without public tender, for which the provincial government provided legal immunity.
