Who knew a Hamilton band could get a Toronto team to change the start time of their home opener?
The Arkells spoke and the CFL answered. The Hamilton band has managed to get the Canadian Football League (CFL) to move the time of a regular season game so it won’t conflict with its Rally Cry Summer Night concert in Toronto. The band recently announced it would be performing at Budweiser Stage on June 22, which is the same day the Hamilton Tiger-Cats take on the Toronto Argonauts. The group sent out a tweet on Wednesday asking the CFL to move the game to a 4 p.m., instead of 7 p.m., and the CFL agreed.The Argos and Ti-Cats jumped on board - and the CFL and TSN made it happen moving the game from 7:00PM to 4:00PM.
The concert is apparently now sold out. Will the move help sell more tickets to the football game?
