Rogers Centre will host the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2015 Pan American Games

The 2015 Pan American Games and 2015 Parapan American Games venues are mostly located in the host city of Toronto, though some other events require facilities located elsewhere. Since the successful bid for the 2015 Pan American Games and 2015 Parapan American Games, some details have changed, with ongoing developments and announcements taking place.[1] Besides Toronto fourteen other municipalities in Southern Ontario will host competitions: Ajax, Hamilton, Innisfil, Markham, Milton, Minden, Mississauga, Mono, Oro-Medonte, Oshawa, Palgrave, St. Catharines, Welland and Whitby.[2]

Sporting venues[edit]

A map of the fifteen host cities

In total 33 venues will be used during both the 2015 Pan and Parapan American Games. 21 of those venues will be used only for the Pan American Games, while three will be used just for the Parapan American Games. Nine venues will be used for both events.

The 2015 Games use a mixture of newly built venues, existing facilities, and temporary facilities, some of them in well known locations such as Exhibition Place and Centennial Park. Some of the new facilities will be reused in their Pan American Games form (for example the BMX track), while others will be reduced in size (for example the Pan American Aquatics Centre and Field House).

Naming[edit]

The Pan American Sports Organization (PASO) and the Toronto 2015 Organizing Committee have a number of major sponsors for the Pan American Games, who are entitled to have their name exclusively associated with the event. As a consequence, any other company that provides sponsorship is not permitted to use its name or branding during the games, which includes venue naming rights (including those not provided by corporate sponsorship and those named in honor of people).

As a consequence of this, eight Pan American venues are temporarily renamed for the duration of the Games:

CIBC Pan Am Park Zone[edit]

Ricoh Coliseum will be renamed "Toronto Coliseum" for the games[citation needed]

The Toronto Pan Am Park encompasses all of the facilities within Exhibition Place in downtown Toronto. The Pan Am Park will include the name of the lead partner in sponsorship CIBC.[3] This Zone consists of six venues.[2] The park contains:

Original Plan[edit]

The venue plan has been vastly changed from the original plan, with sixty percent of the 51 original venues being dropped.[46] The venues were to be divided into three zones - Central Games Zone (Toronto, Mississauga, Brampton, Richmond Hill and Markham), West Games Zone (Hamilton) and East Games Zone (Oshawa, Ajax and Pickering). In addition there were also be venues located outside these zones in Barrie, St. Catharines, Palgrave, Minden and Welland.[47] Ian Troop the CEO of the Organizing Committee said the venue plan was changed because, "the benefits of clustering are that you create economies of scale, the goal for our refined and improved venue plan is to reduce the operational complexities of the event, save costs, deliver an athlete-centred Games that facilitates great performance and create a much richer spectator experience.”[48] Among the changes included the city's largest arena the Air Canada Centre being dropped, due to the organizing committee feeling none of the events warranted that amount of seating (20,000) and the desire to have full venues. Also the cities of Richmond Hill, Burlington and Brampton among others were dropped as host cities.[49] Organizers later revealed a plan that put the majority of venues have into nine cluster zones within the Greater Toronto Area: the Toronto Pan Am Park, Abilities Centre cluster, Etobicoke, Markham, Mississauga, Scarborough, University of Toronto (downtown) and York University clusters. In addition to these there was fourteen venues that was to be outside the boundaries of the Greater Toronto Area.[50] This plan was later replaced with the current venue proposal of five venue zones.[2]
