About Us

Affinity Place is a Multi-Purpose Entertainment and Sports Facility located in Estevan, Saskatchewan. It is owned and operated by the City of Estevan Leisure Services Division.

Affinity Place opened its doors on April 15, 2011, with an official Grand Opening event featuring Tom Cochrane and Kim Mitchell. Affinity Place opened after two years of construction. Individuals and businesses from throughout Estevan and Area showed their support behind the facility by raising $8 million of the $22 million total costs.

Affinity Place was built to supplement the two other ageing ice surfaces in Estevan (Civic Auditorium & Lignite Miners Centre). 

Home to the Estevan Bruins of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League and the Midget AAA Estevan Bears, the facility also hosts concerts, trade shows, mixed martial arts, minor hockey, meetings, banquets and other significant events.
