Their has been a rumor floating around that a 20,000 seat state of the art arena is about to be built in Markham , you never know ..
The arena is not a rumour. Markham city council passed a bylaw(or whatever it is)to generate money through taxes, blah blah blah so it looks like a done deal. In the GTA its closer to 2.5 million people to draw from. Since most can't get Leaf tickets Markham should'nt have a problem selling out. They may not be first in line but should'nt be far from it. The proposed arena is near a main transport hub also which makes it appealing.
