It’s back to being a construction site today, but the first impressions of Tim Hortons Field were great.
The vast majority of callers to CHML’s 5th Quarter post game show had praise for the facility.
More than 18-thousand fans packed into the partially completed stadium and watched Hamilton open the new venue with a 13-12 win over Toronto in the annual Labour Day Classic.
The press box, private suites, club seats, and upper grandstand on the west side were off limits to fans, team and CFL officials, and the media because those areas are still under construction.
The temporary occupancy permit for the stadium was obtained late Sunday night and expired at 7pm Monday.
The Tiger-Cats next home game is Sunday September 14 when they host the defending Grey Cup champion Saskatchewan Roughriders.
