Landry: Victor Cui comes full circle with Elks

For Victor Cui, the team is the thing.

He knew it the first time he walked into Commonwealth Stadium as a 12-year-old kid. He knew it as a young man of eighteen when he joined the naval reserves.

This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at

Inspirational story. He launched ONE Championship into a billion dollar property. The Elk look like they got their act together after cleaning house. He's got really good connections. It'll be interesting to see what happens there.


I guess the board finally got tired of being embarrassed by their poor decisions year after year after year.

He's going to need to work hard. Getting customers back is five times as hard as retaining them.


Best of luck Victor with your new CEO position with the Edmonton Elks. Your well traveled and diverse cultural background will be greatly appreciated in the city of Edmonton. I hope you can understand Head coach Chris Jones with his distinct "southern drawl" :sweat_smile:
