TORONTO – The Toronto Argonauts Football Club announced today The University of Guelph will play host to the team’s 2022 Training Camp as well as the Argos final preseason game on June 3rd vs. Hamilton.
“We love it at the University of Guelph” said Boatmen Head Coach Ryan Dinwiddie. “The facilities, the accommodations, the food, the hospitality from staff is as professional as any place I’ve been. We are thrilled to be back for camp this year, as well as hosting our preseason game against Hamilton at Alumni Stadium”
The Argos are no strangers to campus life at the University of Guelph having held training camp on the Gryphon’s campus in 2021 and 2016 as well as numerous times throughout the 1980’s and 1990’s, while also playing a preseason game at Alumni Stadium in 2018. Camp kicks off May 11th with a three-day rookie camp that includes veteran quarterbacks and first-year CFL players before rosters are cut down to 85 on May 14th. Veterans arrive on May 15th and two days later the roster gets trimmed down to the final 75 plus non-counters.
“We are pleased to welcome back the Toronto Argonauts to the University of Guelph for their training camp,” said Director of Athletics, Scott McRoberts. “These high-profile events are great for our local community; it will be an exciting month around our campus. Our facilities are among the best in the country at the university level and we look forward to watching the Argos prepare for the 2022 season on our Gryphon field.”

The University of Guelph’s football facilities are world-class, feature the latest technology and are a perfect fit for Toronto’s training camp. All facilities are centrally located on campus and within short walking distance of each other. Alumni Stadium features state of the art synthetic turf, a newly renovated track, a brand-new video scoreboard and houses a locker room as nice as any CFL counterpart including breakaway rooms for each position group. Next door to the football field is Gryphon Fieldhouse, which contains an indoor artificial turf field with a 4-lane indoor track and adjacent to the fieldhouse is a stunning new 25,000 square-foot fitness centre built only a few years ago.

“The football facilities at the University of Guelph are second to none,” said five-year Gryphon and eight-year Argo long snapper Jake Reinhart. “It is the perfect place for a CFL training camp and provides us every advantage heading into the preseason and regular season.”
