STATEMENT FROM TIGER-CATS CARETAKER BOB YOUNG REGARDING HOSTING THE 2021 & 2023 GREY CUP GAMES:
"We're looking forward to hosting a thrilling championship caliber game day experience at a full capacity Tim Hortons Field in less than two months," said Tiger-Cats Caretaker Bob Young. "We are grateful to the CFL Board of Governors, the Province of Ontario and the City of Hamilton for their support in providing Hamilton the opportunity to host two Grey Cup games in the span of three seasons. Hamilton hasn't hosted the Grey Cup in 25 years and the League recognized that Tiger-Cats fans and Hamiltonians deserve the opportunity to host the full Grey Cup Festival experience in our city as originally intended, before the pandemic, without the lingering public health restrictions and limitations."
STATEMENT FROM CFL COMMISSIONER RANDY AMBROSIE ON TODAY'S ANNOUNCEMENT:
"We have worked very closely with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and their fellow teams across the country on this plan," said CFL Commissioner Randy Ambrosie. "It's exciting, responsible and fair. It delivers an exciting and complete championship game day experience for this year's Grey Cup game, it responsibly modifies our plan for Grey Cup Week this year due to circumstances beyond our control, and it's only fair to award another Grey Cup to Hamilton in 2023, so Hamilton gets an opportunity down the road to fully realize its bold and ambitious plans for hosting Grey Cup," he said.
More details on this year's plan, including the unveiling of the pregame and halftime entertainment for the 108th Grey Cup game in Hamilton on December 12, will be announced in the next few weeks.
108th Grey Cup tickets go on sale to the general public on Tuesday, October 26, available on Ticketmaster.ca and Ticats.ca/tickets. Or by calling a Tiger-Cats ticket representative at 905-547-2287 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
