Logo of the Atlantic Schooners, a long-forgotten pro football team that never came to be. The team was to be part of a Canadian Football League expansion in 1984. They received conditional approval but the ownership group could not secure the financing and their bid was withdrawn. The team was to be located in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and although the CFL has often entertained the idea of expanding into the Maritime Provinces, the idea has never come to fruition.
