The Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre (SOFMC) is an indoor arena located in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, and is the largest arena in British Columbia outside of Vancouver. It is primarily used for ice hockey (home arena of the Victoria Salmon Kings professional hockey team), concerts and other special events such as figure skating, curling, plays, trade shows and conferences. It is also opened for public ice skating on special occasions; sometimes the public can skate with the Victoria Salmon Kings players after some of the games. The building also features a fine dining restaurant (Kings Feast), retail & meeting space. Shaw Communications has a TV studio on the main floor and itgroove Professional Services shares office space with the arena and Salmon Kings personnel. It occupies the site of the former Victoria Memorial Arena as its successor facility.

It was completed in 2005 and has a maximum seating capacity of 7,400. It replaced the aging and outdated Memorial Arena, also known as the “Barn on Blanshard” which had been constructed in 1949. The first event to be held at the new arena was a Rod Stewart concert, one in which Rod came out on stage in a hardhat, poking fun at the fact the arena wasn’t totally completed at the time.

The SOFMC was developed and is operated by RG Properties Ltd., a Vancouver based development/entertainment company with commercial, recreational and entertainment facilities throughout BC. RG Properties Ltd. is the corporate owner of the Victoria Salmon Kings hockey team.
