LAST CHANCE FOR UPPER LEVEL GREY CUP SEATS

SPECIAL TOURISM TORONTO PACKAGES AVAILABLE

With less than 400 seats left in the upper bowl of Rogers Centre for the Grey Cup game in November, fans looking to purchase the cheapest seats in the house need to act now to avoid disappointment.

Brad Watters, General Manager, Grey Cup 2007, commented, “The demand for the upper bowl seats has surprised everyone. The less expensive tickets are traditionally the last to go but this has not been the case in Toronto. We are thrilled by the pace of sales for this game as football fans are as excited as we are about the return of Canada’s game to Toronto for the first time in 15 years.?

Tourism Toronto has saved some of the best seats for Grey Cup 2007 for out of town guests. Fans can purchase the tickets through Tourism Toronto with special discounts on hotels, event tickets and VIA Rail travel. For more information on these travel deals, please call Tourism Toronto at 1-800-499-2514 or check the packages online at www.torontotourism.com.

Andrew Weir, Vice-President, Communications for Tourism Toronto, remarked, “With flexible and affordable travel packages, Toronto is inviting fans from across Canada to join the celebration for what is sure to be the year's biggest week-long national party."

The Toronto Argonauts home opener on June 28 will have a special Grey Cup theme to show fans a bit of what’s to come in November. Tickets for the Grey Cup are available at Ticketmaster at (416) 872-5000 or at www.ticketmaster.ca.

For sure it has to be the event of the year in Toronto. The Leafs didn't make the playoffs, the Raps did good but still play just inside an arena playing, well, an almost non-contact sport of basketball, Toronto FC soccer, boring as heck to this guy, hey it's soccer what do you expect unless you grew up with the game, Blue Jays, well, baseball is a good game, a good slow game that is, a pastime game, something to past the time with.

Maybe, just maybe, Toronto will show it can party at an all-Canadian affair with a great tradition of CFL football, a real man's sport with pure physical contact, hit 'em style, on every play, regardless of who's in the game. We'll see anyways.
