UNCASVILLE, CT – Mohegan announced that the all-new 5,000-seat OLG Stage at Fallsview Casino in Niagara Falls, which recently celebrated its grand opening with a sell-out Billy Joel performance in February, has been nominated for “Casino of the Year – Arena” by the Academy of Country Music Awards (ACM). This venue has also finished the month of March as the top ranked entertainment venue for its size in Canada as well as No. 10 worldwide for its size. Mohegan’s flagship property, Mohegan Sun in Connecticut, also announced that Mohegan Sun Arena is the No. 1 ranked arena for its size in the United States, and ranked No. 2 worldwide for its size, according to Pollstar Magazine.
“It’s incredible to see the new OLG Stage at Fallsview Casino nominated for its first Casino of the Year Award by ACM, a recognition that Mohegan Sun Arena has taken home several times in its history,” said Tom Cantone, President of Sports & Entertainment for Mohegan. “March was also a phenomenal month for both venues as this is the first time that a casino entertainment organization has had two No. 1 venues at the same time in two separate countries.”
Mohegan Sun Arena is also currently enjoying a record-setting run of 16 consecutive sell-outs, starting with the Pentatonix performance in late 2022, and stretching through this past weekend when a sold-out Electric Light Orchestra Experience performance took place.
“We could not be more honored with the recognition for the OLG Stage at Fallsview Casino,” said Richard Tayler, President of Niagara Casinos. “Our teams have been working incredibly hard to make our venue an amazing experience for customers, associates the artist and the tours that come through. The hard work is being noticed and there is lots to be proud of.”
