RAPTORS/SKYDOME ANNOUNCE LEASE DEAL
Published December 2, 1994
The Raptors and SkyDome will announce today that they have completed the lease agreement for the team's first two seasons. The deal is believed to be worth $4.5M per season. Officials at SkyDome hope the team will stay there beyond the first two seasons. SkyDome President Bob Hunter said the deal is a one-year plus one-year term, with an option to renew after the second year. Hunter: "Certainly we'd like to think they'll be with us for a long while." But Raptors VP/Communications Tom Mayenknecht said the team "fully intends to be playing in our own building" after the first two seasons (Craig Daniels, TORONTO SUN, 12/2).
