When I heared that CFL Montreal Club owner had 2 potential US buyers for CFL football I had to follow up on it.
In a previous threat I heard that those two cities were Fargo ND and Rochester NY, I took it into my own hands to do a little research into the two cites.
Fargo I did not take seriously however Rochester NY took me by suprise.
Rochester NY is located close to Hamilton and Toronto. http://www.housesandhomes.com/images_ci ... r_map3.jpg
So looking deeper into the city I found a few stadiums that my play a role into the city getting a team when low and behold, there it was ...Pea Tec Park.http://www.paetecpark.com/uphotos/image.php?id=158
It is a soccer stadium that allows other sports to play there as well.
This year it had 25 football games plus it was also used for the Empire state games.
So I phoned the stadium and talked them myself about the CFL rumor, the size of the CFL feild, and if they would allow a pro football team to use their stadium for pro games.
Their answer was something like this...
-We would be interested in having a pro football team use are stadium be it the CFL or any football league as are stadium is a multi event stadium. We would however have to meet with teams owners or the league to discuse it, but we are always looking for more events here at the stadium.
Now the stadium currently holds about 14 000 and they are planning to upgrade it to 20 000 plus seats and private boxes.
In conclusion, I do not know if any rumor of any possible Rochester NY CFL owner is true or not, but if it is, Rochester NY would be able to pull it off.
