FLAMES MOVE TO CHANGE NAME OF OLYMPIC SADDLEDOME
Published June 6, 1995
Flames executives are talking with Calgary city officials about changing the name of the Olympic Stadium, according to the CALGARY HERALD. Flames Asst PR Dir Mike Burke confirmed that a name rights deal is being discussed. Burke: "It is a possibility because we need a (new) revenue stream." The City Council would have to approve any name change and members have said they would do so only if Calgary stands to gain from the move. Alderman Bev Longstaff: "If the Saddledome can put some money back into the city, then I would consider it." The HERALD's David Steinhart notes that city hall will not move on this issue until after the October 16 city election in order for the aldermen to avoid any controversy (CALGARY HERALD, 6/6).
