News in Review The Senators: Selling the Home Team

News in Review The Senators: Selling the Home Team

As we have seen in previous News in Review stories, business and sport are inextricably linked and subject to the same market forces and market realities as other businesses. This story, which focuses on the Ottawa Senators NHL hockey team, also examines the medium-market sport franchises of Canada’s “national game” in Quebec City, Winnipeg and Edmonton. The role of government subsidies for businesses, in this case professional sport organizations, is the controversial issue at the heart of the story. And once again the issue of national and cultural identity is an underlying theme.
