As contruction workers race to get Tim Horton’s Field ready for the Ticats’ home opener on July 26, the turf is being placed on the field.
But Councillor Lloyd Ferguson, a member of Hamilton’s stadium sub-committee, says don’t be too excited about that.
The company that makes the turf says it takes 52 days to have the field completed.
FieldTurf says the time frame for turf installation is “a casual estimate.”
The Ticats will be applying for an occupancy permit on July 15.
