Toronto – The Toronto Argonauts Football Club provided the following update on the location of the team’s upcoming regular season home game on Saturday, October 17 against the Calgary Stampeders.
“We can now confirm that our home game scheduled for this Saturday, October 17 at 4:00 p.m. ET against the Calgary Stampeders will be played at Tim Hortons Field in Hamilton. This solution provides our team with a neutral-site that meets CFL and broadcast standards,” said Argonauts Executive Chairman & CEO, Chris Rudge. “We anticipated that the Blue Jays would have a competitive post-season run and, as previously announced, we prepared this contingency plan for exactly this scenario. I would again like to thank the Tiger-Cats organization for accommodating our move and assisting us with this challenge.”
Rudge continued, “We have continued to work on alternate plans for our October 23 home game against the Montreal Alouettes should there be another similar conflict with the MLB post-season schedule. As previously announced those plans are not yet final but will most likely also result in our team playing at Tim Hortons Field. We will communicate the appropriate details as early as possible once a decision is known. Again, we thank everyone for their continued support and patience during this unusual time.”
