The B.C. Lions are enjoying a period of strong growth and support from the community and corporate sponsors.

According to VP of business operations George Chayka, the team's numbers over the last five years have been a happy surprise:

- Sponsorship revenue: increased 225 per cent

- Season ticket revenue: increased 295 per cent

- Corporate print properties revenue: increased 378 per cent

- Suite revenue: increased 448 per cent

- Merchandise revenue: increased 935 per cent

"As long as we continue to do what we're doing with regards to our performance on the field and our work in the community, I see no reason why they wouldn't continue to grow," said Chayka.
