Mosaic Place (also known as the Moose Jaw Multiplex) is a multi-purpose arena in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada. It hosts ice hockey and curling events and is home to the Moose Jaw Warriors of the Western Hockey League. It opened on August 19, 2011 and seats 4,500 spectators. It replaced the Warriors' former arena, the Moose Jaw Civic Centre.
By the early 2000s, the Moose Jaw Civic Centre faced criticism that it was too small and not up to standards for the Warriors hockey team. A civic referendum in 2006 approved construction of a new $36.3 million arena, with the city contributing $15 million. Soon after, plans emerged for a more ambitious $61.2 million facility, with $36.5 million coming from the city. A group of citizens sued the city, claiming that the referendum vote in 2006 did not allow the city to spend more than the original amount. The case was dismissed, and civic voters approved the project again in 2009 with a second referendum.
The entire project cost about $61 million, with the city of Moose Jaw paying $34.5 million. Provincial and federal governments paid $8 million and community fundraising committed to $10 million. Groundbreaking for the new facility took place on July 9, 2009. Ten-year naming rights to the facility were sold to The Mosaic Company for $150,000 per year, beginning in 2011.
Mosaic Place's operational costs are subsidized by the municipality.
