A Hamilton councillor says it will be “a real stretch” to have Tim Hortons Field ready for the Labour Day Classic.
Lloyd Ferguson told CHML’s Bill Kelly Show “there’s a 60 to 70 per cent chance” that it will be ready in time.
Ferguson, who toured the stadium last week, admits he was surprised to see the amount of work that still needs to be done.
He says he doubts there will be concession stands, adding the priority now is health, fire and safety.
But guard rails and hand railings have not been completed and elevator installation has yet to be finished.
The Tiger-Cats are set to host the Toronto Argonauts on September 1 after stadium construction delays forced the team to play its first three home games at McMaster University.
The original plan was to have Tim Hortons Field completed by June 30.
The construction company has assured the team and city that it will meet the Labour Day deadline.
