Constructed in 1960, McMahon Stadium continues to serve as a vital sports arena for Calgarians. McMahon is the home of the Calgary Stampeders Football Club and is a very prominent landmark in Calgary. The stadium was constructed in a 100 day period at a cost of $320,000. The original seating capacity was 22,000. The scope of work also included the clubhouse area, concession areas and main concourse development. McMahon has been host to several world class events, most notably the 1988 Winter Olympic Games Opening and Closing Ceremonies. The stadium is located on the University of Calgary campus parallel to Crowchild Trail in the city's Northwest quadrant. Other organizations using the stadium include the Calgary Dinos & the Calgary Colts.
