The respective seasons of the Flames and Calgary Stampeders could be in trouble in the event of a rapid resumption of activities, as the mayor of the city of alberta has announced the cancellation of all public events until June 30, because of the pandemic of sars coronavirus.
It is Madeline Smith, a reporter for the “Calgary Herald” and the “Calgary Sun”, which reported the news Friday. Mayor Naheed Nenshi has announced this measure during a press conference.
The leaders of the Flames could find themselves with a serious problem if the national hockey League decided to go forward with a plan to finish the regular season and play the playoffs.
On the side of the team of the canadian football League (CFL) training camp, planned in advance for may, had already to be postponed. Any door to believe that the “Stamps” will have to at least wait until the month of July to begin their preparation.
According to Smith, Nenshi said the parts of the Flames and Stampeders could not be held in Calgary during this period. We do not, however, specify if this includes the meetings held behind closed doors. The mayor also mentioned that the cancellation of events could go beyond June 30.
While the city of alberta is approaching a thousand positive cases to the COVID-19, the organizers of the Calgary Stampede are also concerned for the holding of their event, which is taking place from July 3 to 12,.
