Edmonton Rush not moving to Saskatoon, GM says
By DEREK VAN DIEST, QMI Agency
The Edmonton Rush are staying put.
According to Rush president Dave Jamieson, talk of the team possibly moving to Saskatoon was just that — talk.
While owner Bruce Urban was approached by a group in Saskatoon about a month ago, the Rush are determined to make professional lacrosse work in Edmonton.
They have the strong team, now it’s simply a matter of getting more people out to watch them.
“The genesis of all of this was that there was an approach from a group in Saskatoon that made the call to Bruce Urban, to talk about the viability or the feasibility of the Rush moving there,” said Jamieson. “Bruce, as he should, took that phone call, but he remains committed to keeping the team here and winning in Edmonton.
“This happens a lot in business, where someone expresses interest in something else and they come in and kick the tires. So it’s not uncommon.”
