If you want to immerse yourself in Flames history, Calgary’s Scotiabank Saddledome is the place to start. Southern Alberta’s most beloved sports franchise has called this uniquely shaped building home since 1983 with talents like Theo Fleury, Joe Nieuwendyk and Jarome Iginla serving as some of the rink’s star attractions. An exciting crop of new talent suggests that there’s still thrills to be had at the Saddledome.

Calgary Flames Stadium

The Calgary Flames are in the process of trying to get a new arena for the club sooner rather than later, but that’s not to say the Scotiabank Saddledome hasn’t been good to the club in the past. During the team’s 1989 Stanley Cup hoisting season, fans went berserk for the club’s Game 1 and Game 5 wins en route to the victory in Montreal in Game 6. The Olympic-indebted arena has also seen Campbell/Western Conference Championships in 1986 and 2004. Opposing clubs that head into Calgary in the postseason are greeted by the “C of Red” in the stands and the drunken revelry of the Red Mile in the streets.

Seeing as the Calgary Flames are professional ice hockey team playing in Canada, attendance is reliably strong with 19,000+ fans turning up on a nightly basis. The Flames, who had a shocking two round deep playoff run in 2014-15, experienced little in the way of a home record boost during the regular season. The team won only one more game at the Saddledome that season than they did away from it. The playoffs were a completely different story, mind you. The postseason featured Calgary winning four out of five home games, including a OT thriller over the Anaheim Ducks in Round 2.
