FLAMES HOME TO BE CALLED CANADIAN AIRLINES SADDLEDOME
Published July 25, 1995
The Flames were "forced to sweeten the pot" yesterday before a name change to the Olympic Saddledome could "take flight with city council," according to David Steinhart of the CALGARY HERALD. As part of the deal, the team will now make a C$2M contribution (C$100,000 a year) to amateur sports over the duration of the C$10M, 20-year deal with Canadian Airlines. Originally, the agreement called for a C$1.5M "injection" into amateur sports, but that wasn't enough to satisfy the council. An additional C$10M in service contracts -- team travel and advertising -- is also included. Also, with the Olympic name being removed, a wall will be built in the Saddledome to "commemorate the legacy" of the '88 Games (CALGARY HERALD, 7/25).
