Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment announced its 10-year partnership with Coca-Cola on Wednesday for the Marlies home. The soft drink giant will donate a suite to non-profit community organizations for all Marlies home games and open the rink for several community skate events.

The venue has been home to the Marlies since 2004, and was the site of the team’s first Calder Cup championship last month in front of a packed house for Game 7 against the Texas Stars.

Known as the CNE Coliseum when it was constructed in 1922, it has hosted concerts from the likes of the Doors, the Who, Vanilla Fudge, Genesis, Circus and Jimi Hendrix.
