History

In 2000, construction began on the SBC Center, located next to the Freeman Coliseum, home of the Central Hockey League's San Antonio Iguanas.

The Center was built primarily for the San Antonio Spurs who were unhappy with the Alamodome.[citation needed] Bexar County granted the Spurs booking rights, meaning the team had full control over their schedule as well as the schedules of all other non-NBA sporting events at the rechristened AT&T Center. The Spurs initiated a hostile buy-out of the Iguanas. The Iguanas' ownership refused to sell, and suspended operations instead.[citation needed]

Partnering with the Florida Panthers, the Spurs brought a new hockey team to San Antonio. Initially unveiled as the "Stampede", the Spurs were notified that the name was owned by another party. The team was renamed the "Rampage".[citation needed]

On 30 June 2005, the San Antonio Spurs bought the team from the Panthers. The Rampage unveiled a new look to celebrate their fifth season in San Antonio, changing the team colors to the silver and black motif used by the Spurs (consistent with other sports franchises owned by the Spurs).

On 11 April 2007, the Coyotes announced that it had fired Rampage general manager Laurence Gilman, who had been with the Coyotes organization for 13 years. [1]
