TORONTO — For the second year in a row, the CFL is heading to the East Coast for Touchdown Atlantic, and once again, the region and fans from across Canada have shown their passion for the game by selling out the contest. In response, the league has expanded capacity in the Church Brewing Party Zone to welcome 1,000 additional fans.
It’s 10,000 seats and half the fans will be from Saskatchewan.
The home town Wanderers soccer team sell out 8,000 every game.
Don’t know if there is any interest in QC, the Ottawa/Montreal pre-season game there a few years ago drew only fans form Ottawa and Montral
I would like to see QC too but I don’t think there is any interest there, no owners/investors no fan interest.
I know Ambrosie keeps talking about working behind the scenes but there is zero funding for a stadium unless some billionaire funds it
A lot of the Saskatchewan fans at the last Touchdown Atlantic sat in the same section…They are friends and family of Brett Lauther who is from Nova Scotia and played his university ball at Saint Mary’s and it was his section.
Most of the Touchdown Atlantic games have been sold out or very near capacity. First five Touchdown Atlantics did not have Saskatchewan playing. Totally disagree with your comment.
The last time they played in a sold out 20k configuration was way back in 2011. The Ticats played there in 2013 when TH was under construction and nowhere near a sell out.
No games held down there between 2014 to 2018
For the 2019 game they decided not to expand but keep it at 10k . No game in 2020 because of the pandemic.
