The Saddledome was built in 1983 with ice hockey in mind replacing the Stampede Corral as the Calgary Flames's home. It was originally named the Olympic Saddledome and hosted the 1988 Winter Olympics. Today, it also doubles as an entertainment avenue and hosts events for the Calgary Exhibition and Stampede.
The Calgary Roughnecks of the NLL also play here. Since its establishment, a series of major renovations have taken place at the Saddledome although it remains one of the oldest NHL arenas.

Despite its age, the Saddledome still features state-of-the-art equipment making it a great place for hockey. Saddledome has a combination of metal halide and incandescent lighting. The sound, over 6,400 roof panels coupled with fine acoustical engineering lets the noise reverberate throughout the arena so both the hockey game and Flames fans can be heard to the maximum.
