Executive Committee Member

After an outstanding seven-year playing career with the Red and White, Sapunjis has enjoyed his switch from athlete to businessman.

He is currently the president of Reliance Metals Canada, a company he joined in 2011.

Sapunjis re-joined the Stampeders in 2005 when he was part of a group of local businessmen who purchased the club.

As a player with the Stamps from 1990-96, Sapunjis — known affectionately by fans and teammates as “Sponge” — was an all-star slotback and was twice named the CFL’s Most Outstanding Canadian. He was runner-up for the CFL’s Most Outstanding Player award in 1995 and remains among the leaders in all Stamps receiving categories. Sapunjis won a Grey Cup in 1992 and was named the game’s top Canadian.

A Toronto native, Sapunjis chose to remain in Calgary after concluding his playing career. He is an alumnus of the University of Western Ontario.
