Your Guide to The Edmonton Oilers
Witness the hockey hair flowing live and in person at Rogers Place in the ICE District and watch the Edmonton Oilers battle it out amongst the world’s best hockey players. With 5 Stanley Cup Championships under their very large sleeves and one of the sleekest barns (hockey arenas) in North America, you’re in for a real treat. If the Oilers are on a road trip, watch future NHL stars battle it out at an Edmonton Oil Kings WHL game— also a fantastic experience for the whole family!
Tickets and Seating Areas
There are plenty of seating options in Rogers Place, and not a bad sightline in the arena. You will be able to enjoy your Oilers experience from various different sections.
Die Hard Fans
Do you want to see the sweat dripping down Connor McDavid’s face? Do you want to heckle the opposing team until you see their tears splash on the ice? Then the lower bowl sections (100s) are for you. The Oilers and Oil Kings bench is in front of Section 102, and the visitor bench is in front of section 103.
Here for the Party
So, you’re the guy who makes it onto the jumbo screen and chugs not one, but two beers in seconds and then proceeds to dance down the stairs? You’ll find your fellow party people at the Drink Rail sections located in 101, 104, 105, and 107 and in the Sportsnet Sky Lounge.
For the best views of the ice, check out the Loge seating. With in-seat wait service at the tables, you’ll never have to leave your seat and you won’t miss any of the action. If you like a birds eye view of the game (and cheaper ticket prices), rows 1-4 in Sections 202, 203, 219 and 220 are stellar spots.
Whether you are walking, driving, cycling, ubering or taking Edmonton Transit, getting to Rogers Place can be a seamless experience with a little bit of planning.
Pedestrians can access Rogers Place through the Pedestrian Portal on 103 Avenue and 103 Street that directly into Ford Hall, or via the main entrance on 104 avenue. Additional access is available on the north side of the arena through MacEwan Station and the south east entrance on 104 avenue.

Do talk to those around you
Do wear your team’s colours
Don’t be late. Arriving late causes disruptions to those around you while the game is on.
Don’t leave your seats during the middle of a play.
Don’t forget to bring a sweater - it’s not as cold in the arena as it is outside, but you’ll want to be comfortable while you cheer on the Oil!
Do celebrate when the Oilers get a goal. High-fiving your neighbours, fist pumping, and dancing are encouraged!
Get ready for an ear-shattering crowd experience.
Post Game Party
After the game, find a member of the Orange and Blue Ice Crew and ask them for a free ticket to the Sportsnet Sky Lounge where a curtain is drawn, the music is turned up and the Sky Lounge is transformed into a nightclub.
No Tickets, No Problem
If you weren’t able to snag tickets to a game, you’ll have just as much fun in the Molson Canadian Hockey House located inside Rogers Place in Ford Hall.
