Home arena of NHL's Calgary Flames renamed Scotiabank Saddledome

CALGARY - The Calgary Flames are taking their partnership with Scotiabank to another level.

The financial institution has been given naming rights to the Flames' home arena, which will now be called Scotiabank Saddledome.

“The Calgary Flames are honoured and proud that Scotiabank, one of the nation’s oldest and most respected financial institutions has chosen to partner in the Scotiabank Saddledome," Flames president and CEO Ken King said in a release Friday.

"It's much more than a name on a building. It is a total and mutual commitment to co-branding and marketing two of Canada’s best, in banking and in hockey."

Financial terms and agreement details weren't released. The arena, previously known as the Pengrowth Saddledome, is also home to the WHL's Calgary Hitmen and the NLL's Calgary Roughnecks.

Originally named the Olympic Saddledome, the stadium was constructed in 1983 for the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics.

Scotiabank and the Flames have worked as partners over the last five years to develop hockey programs at the grassroots level in the community.
