Ryerson University will be excluding “Maple Leaf” from the title of its athletic centre due to an ongoing lawsuit filed by Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment (MLSE).

Although the name has not been officially decided, Sheldon

Levy confirmed the name will not be chosen until the final outcome of the lawsuit with MLSE.

“Right now MLSE does not want us to use Maple Leaf Gardens in our branding, that’s why I just said the ‘Gardens,’” said Levy.

Levy has confirmed the name must include the following titles: Ryerson university, athletic centre, the Gardens and the donor name. The donor’s name is still being kept under wraps by the university.

“How all of those come together without creating a name that is 14 hundred characters will be the challenge. No decision has been made,” said Levy.
