What the winning business will receive

Bringing businesses and their customers together through sports

Calgary is a sports town, with hockey being one of the most popular sports amongst Calgarians who support their local team, the Calgary Flames, in the National Hockey League. The Calgary Stampeders also have a strong fan base and compete in the Canadian Football League. Since the fall of 2021, Square has been working with Calgary Sports and Entertainment Corporation to enable them to accept credit and Interac debit payments with Square Register and Square Terminal for the first time at Scotiabank Saddledome and McMahon Stadiums. From there, we had the idea that we could help support small businesses by bringing together the small business community and their customers through their shared passion for sport.
