Ticats fans love Tim Hortons Field

Hamilton, ON, Canada / AM900 CHML

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.

  1. it is wonderful to see so many happy people. It is great that something is new in our city.
    Looking forward the James St., N, GO, to come and bring many people to appreciate our beautiful city and it’s great people.

  2. Sent the kids to enjoy the history. The stadium ran out of water and ice tea so the kids ended up with pop, which we do not drink often at home, they would of appreciated the H2O instead with the heat! No food selection as well. They were starving when we picked them up. They did purchase pop corn and pom-poms from the gift store. I figured at least hot dogs would be available for them. Overall, they had fun but not too happy with the uncompleted stadium. Seemed like a half fast job to get most of the fans in. We are paying for the whole experience NOT just a quick game!
