The Hershey Centre is the home arena of the Mississauga St. Michael's Majors of the Ontario Hockey League. It previously housed the Mississauga IceDogs from 1998-2007, and the Toronto ThunderHawks during the 2000-2001 National Professional Soccer League season. It has also been the venue for several notable musical acts.
First opened in 1998, the Hershey Centre is located on Rose Cherry Place, named after the late wife of Don Cherry, founder and former owner of the IceDogs.
In 2007, a new multi-sport facility called Hershey SportZone opened just to the north of the main bowl. SportZone houses a full size indoor soccer field, a full size FIBA basketball court, a gymnastics facility, and two outdoor soccer fields.
The NARCh Inline Hockey Championships were held at Hershey Centre in 2006 and will be again 2009.
