Say 'hi’ to Spartacat
Often referred to as Sparty, you’ll find Ottawa’s loveable mascot dancing and cheering at every home game. Spartacat is a staple within the Ottawa community as the ambassador of fun to the Sens. Look for Sparty on the jumbotron and roaming around the stadium and say hi to Ottawa’s biggest party animal.

Enjoy these delicious eats
What’s one of the best parts of taking in a game at Canadian Tire Centre? The food. Stadium food is a vital part of enjoying any sports game, and there are plenty of tasty snacks and meals to indulge in while you cheer on the Sens at home. Canadian Tire Centre has food for every taste, from foot-long hot dogs to food truck-style comfort favourites and even egg rolls.
For those who love a good burger with customizable toppings, you’ll find Burger Shack in sections 206 and 224. Enjoy a burger topped just the way you want it, and hand-cut fries, onion rings and hot dogs. Speaking of hot dogs, head to section 219 to find XL Dogs. Serving up foot-long, grilled hot dogs topped with your chosen toppings. You can also check out Chef’s Kitchen for food truck-style bites like the Canadian Mac & Cheese, which you’ll find outside section 323. Only 29 of the Canadian Mac & Cheese are served per game, so make Chef’s Kitchen one of your first stops in the arena.
Of course, you can enjoy nachos, popcorn, pizza and pretzels at Sens Express Concessions throughout the arena. Plus, you’ll find Ottawa’s famous Golden Palace eggrolls at Six Pints in section 107, TSN Grill in section 113, and Bytown Grill in section 119.
