In Hamilton, the officials of the CLF-Canadian Football League have announced their plans for the Grey Cup. And there were three major news items which we’d be able to capture from their announcements.
The first news is about the 108th Grey Cup, which will take place on December 12. The officials have set the date and expect the full-capacity will happen on Tim Hortons Field. Naturally, the COVID-19 health protocols will be heavily used on the date.
The officials expect all the fans to have already received the vaccines. They will also deliver the first-class Grey Cup game experience which will make all of the attendees satisfied.
The complete experience includes the fly-overs, half-time entertainment, as well as top shelf pre-game. The full capacity is set at 24,000.
The ticket sales started on October 26 for public customers. Those who have purchased Tiger-Cat season tickets will have direct access to Grey Cup tickets.
In a nutshell, Tiger-Cat season ticket holders already have the privilege of reserving their tickets. But you won’t need to worry since you can get the tickets from the general public sales.
The second news is about the plans for the Grey Cup Week. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there are some restrictions that all folks must pay attention to.
There have been some modifications by the officials. However, the Grey Cup theme will be viable at the local bars and restaurants. Chances are the visitors who go there will enjoy the hype surrounding the Grey Cup.
Also, the fans won’t miss the important events such as the Head Coaches Conference, CFL Awards, Grey Cup Arrival, and the Commissioner’s State of the League. The officials will also come up with a newer announcement which will focus on detailing the pre-game and half-time entertainment.
In the third news, there was an award to Hamilton for the 2023 Grey Cup. The CFL’s Board of Governors voted this week to award Hamilton with the Grey Cup. What does it mean then?
Tiger-Cat fans and supporters across the country will have the opportunity to see their authentic Grey Cup plan in action. CFL Commissioner Randy Ambrosie has also confirmed the news. CFL officials have indeed worked with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and teams across the country.
For the Grey Cup in 2023, Hamilton will have more plans for hosting the Grey Cup. Hamilton has been waiting for 25 years to host the next Grey Cup on their agenda. It will host two grey cups in the plan.
Hamilton 2023 has been awarded by the CFL. As a result, the Grey Cup will be held in the same location twice. Hamilton will host the 2021 edition of the Grey Cup at Tim Hortons Field on December 12.
Meanwhile, the 2022 Grey Cup will take place at Mosaic Stadium in Regina.
Back then, the original 2020 Grey Cup game was supposed to take place in Regina. But the covid-19 pandemic impacts were too risky for all fans and concerned parties.
The last Grey Cup that happened in Hamilton was in 1996, when the Toronto Argonauts took the victory from Edmonton at Ivor Wynne Stadium.
