Surrey eyes new arena

Surrey EaglesSurrey is the second-largest municipality in British Columbia, but it lacks first-rate athletic facilities, and Mayor Dianne Watts wants to change that, perhaps with a new arena capable of supporting professional hockey.

Surrey features a team in the BCHL: the Surrey Eagles play at 1,242-seat South Surrey Arena. Watts would like to see a bigger facility, something capable of hosting what the mayor calls “professional” hockey. To that end, she’s talking with the provincial government about a public-private partnership that could yield a new arena or events center in the town center, perhaps built as part of a convention center.
