AB: This article chronicles the pro hockey and football scene in Alberta during the 1970s and early 1980s which consisted of five consecutive Grey Cup victories for the Edmonton Eskimos as well as the arrival of two World Hockey Association teams, two National Hockey League franchises, two pro baseball teams and five professional soccer franchises for Edmonton and Calgary. Also included was the rising success of the 1970s Edmonton Eskimos following the efforts of Norm Kimball and the shrewd management of two coaches, Ray Jauch and Hugh Campbell as well as information on the Winnipeg Jets and the signing of a then relatively unknown Wayne Gretzky to the Edmonton Oilers franchise.
