TORONTO – To celebrate the one-year countdown to the historic 100th Grey Cup championship, Toronto’s 100th Grey Cup Festival Committee will be offering an exclusive 100-hour nationwide general public access window to 100th Grey Cup tickets, beginning at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time on Monday, November 28. Fans from across the country will be able to place a $50 deposit per ticket, guaranteeing their place at this once-in-a-lifetime cultural and sporting event. Once this window is over, access to tickets will once again go back in the vault and will not be available for purchase to the general public until June 2012.
Chris Rudge, Chairman and CEO, 100th Grey Cup Festival, commented, “We are excited to allow fans from across this great nation a chance to secure their seats to this monumental game ahead of the general public on-sale and begin to plan their trips to Toronto to take part in all that the Festival will offer. Demand for the 100th Grey Cup game is very high and we encourage fans to take advantage of the access period now to avoid disappointment.?
During the 100 hour period, which takes place from Monday, November 28 at 10:00 a.m. EST until Friday, December 2 at 2:00 p.m. EST, fans can log onto http://www.100thgreycupfestival.ca and place a deposit on up to 8 tickets.
