The Powerade Centre (formerly the Brampton Centre for Sports & Entertainment) is a 5,000-seat multi-purpose arena in Brampton, Ontario, Canada. It was built in 1998, and officially opened the same year on October 7. Its main arena is home to two major hockey teams, the Brampton Battalion of the OHL, and the Brampton Thunder of the CWHL. It is also home to the Brampton Excelsiors lacrosse team. The Bramalea Blues of the Ontario Provincial Junior A Hockey League will play out of the arena starting in Fall 2008.

In the main arena the seats are purple, with private suites located around the top of seating area. The club seats are on the penalty box side of the arena. They have a standard four-sided scoreboard which is purple to go with the arena theme colour. The concourse is horseshoe-shaped. Fans cannot walk all the way around the arena in a circle.

The main arena is part of larger community complex, that includes three smaller ice pads, and outdoor softball diamonds. It is located at 7575 Kennedy Road, on the south-side of the city, between Steeles Avenue and 407 ETR.
