New home for the Calgary Flames officially in the works!

The deal was finally struck.



After nearly 40 years of playing in the Scotiabank Saddledome, the Calgary Flames will soon have a brand new home to call their own to replace the aging facility.

Minutes ago, it was announced that a deal has officially been struck to replace the venue that opened in 1983. The new complex, which is expected to be complete in 2027, will be getting almost $900 million in government funding. 

Alberta Premier Danielle Smith had this to say: 

“Let me tell you, Calgary isn’t Calgary without the Flames and Alberta isn’t Alberta without the Battle of Alberta.”
