The owners of the Toronto Blue Jays have bought SkyDome - for $25-million.

The 50,000-seat domed stadium opened in 1989 with a price tag of $600-million, mostly funded by taxpayers.

Rogers Communications announced the purchase from U.S.-based Sportsco International in a news release Monday.

"The purchase of SkyDome is an opportunity for us to acquire a tremendous asset at an extremely attractive price, but more importantly, we will now have significantly better control over our product and the fan experience," said Paul Godfrey, president and CEO of the Jays.

The sale is expected to close in December 2004.
