On Friday, the Ontario government cleared certain indoor and outdoor sports venues to operate at 100% capacity. This is great news, as Tim Hortons Field in Hamilton can now hold more fans.
The announcement couldn’t have come at a better time, since the Tiger-Cats have one of their biggest games of the season against the Toronto Argonauts on Monday. They’re going to need a lot of support if they want to pull off the upset, so a larger audience will help keep the momentum and energy strong.
Not only will full capacity benefit the Tiger-Cats, but it will also benefit the CFL as a whole. The Grey Cup is scheduled to be held in Hamilton on December 12th, and with the league’s popularity declining in recent years, it’s important to fill as many seats as possible in the championship game. This could change depending on case numbers and hospitalizations in the province, but it’s still a step in the right direction.
COVID-19 has been a worldwide challenge that seems to have no end. For football fans in Canada, especially Ontario, this small breakthrough will mean a lot.
