IS TORONTO A CITY "WAITING FOR NFL"?
Published August 10, 1995
Toronto will host the American Bowl game between the Cowboys and the Bills at SkyDome Saturday. Since the "day the [Sky] Dome opened, there has been little doubt that this is a stadium -- and a city -- in waiting for the NFL," writes Ken McKee in the TORONTO STAR. SkyDome VP/Corporate Affairs David Garrick: "We are trying to make an impression on the NFL ... this will be bigger than the Grey Cup (in attendance, merchandise sales, etc.)." Garrick says attendance for the game will hit 55,000, with tickets at C$35 (TORONTO STAR, 8/10).
