Place Bell ranked 2nd on list of filthiest stadiums in Canada

Based on 200,000 Google reviews, the City of Laval’s Place Bell recently won a second-place ranking of major event venues across Canada which were judged to be the filthiest.

“The home of the Laval Rocket seems to suffer, according to various visitors, especially when it comes to the toilets,” according to a post about the rankings published on The Grueling Truth, an online sports-themed website (

“People write ‘The toilets are dirty,’ and ‘The toilets have no papers at the start of the event,’ while another mentions ‘Bathrooms were dirty and unkept, no toilet paper or soap to wash hands.’

“But it’s not just the bathrooms that have received criticism. Some aren’t satisfied with the food either. One reviewer mentions ‘undercooked pizza,’ and another advises, ‘Eat before you go. The concession food is really, really disgusting. It’s a real joke.’

The Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa (the nation’s capital) earned the number one spot, while the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary was number three.

Olympic Stadium in Montreal was in fifth place, while Percival Molson Memorial Stadium in Montreal (home to the CFL’s Alouettes) finished eleventh.
