Current CSA a negative for attracting sponsors


Recommended Posts

I suggest that if the CSA was better run it would be a better financed NSO that would attract sponsors & generated money for all the programs we need to better the sport at all levels.

It's like a business, who's going to invest in a business that is constantly infighting & politicing, have no master plan, lacks transparency, no gender equity/equality & is constanting going back the the shareholders for more money.

Hockey 1/2 the size of soccer has no problem attracting money from all levels of the government & other sponsors. Go to their web site & look at the different in the level of professionalism as a NSO. Look at the success they have w/ their national programs which leads to more sponsorship & money for development.




Alberta to spend $69-million on centre for national hockey teams

CALGARY — The government of Alberta says it will spend $69-million on a proposed state-of-the-art training centre in Calgary for Canada's national men's and women's hockey teams.

Today's announcement by Premier Ed Stelmach follows through on a promise made by the government last year to pay for one-quarter of the project.

The first phase will include two rinks — one Olympic size, the other with the dimensions of an NHL rink — along with office space for Hockey Canada.

It would replace an existing facility near the University of Calgary.

Bob Nicholson, president of Hockey Canada, says the federal government, the City of Calgary and the private sector must also contribute to the complex, which is slated to cost about $280-million.

Nicholson says the goal is to have the facility paid for and built in two years so teams can move in, train and be ready for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.
