Yes I know we secured a home game but you cant honestly tell me the argos will win out and we will lose out. Last year we didn't officially sell out the game and people said it was because we didn't have enough time to sell tickets...
We haven't officially secured our home game. If we lose the next two and the Argos win the next two they will get the game because they will be beating us in the standings. Selling tickets before it's a lock is a recipe for disaster, especially considering how many refunds would need to be processed. Plus it puts a jinx on the team.
Don't worry Makaveli, this year we are facing the Argos and the few Toronto diehards will likely make the trip to top off Ivor Wynne, as opposed to last year, where I just don't think many BC fans made the trip.
Like I said I know we haven’t secured the game, but giving refunds isn’t very hard. There will be a few Argo fans showing up but I don’t think there will be anywhere near as many fans as we bring down to Toronto.
Yeah, but keep in mind, the attendance for the last playoff game vs BC was 27,430. That means we were 3,000 short of a sellout. I think we can pull 3,000 from Toronto for a playoff game, and if not we should still be able to pull more if only because Hamiltonians love putting the hurt on Toronto.
(1) A 4 for 3 ticket offer for the Nov. 6 game.
(2) 50% off additional seats for season ticket holders. (same as last home game, but no personal invitation from Baggs)
(3) Most relevant to this topic, if you purchase tickets to the Nov. 6 game, you get access to playoff tickets.
I wonder if someone from the team can come on here and settle this for us. I don't recall the team selling playoff tickets prior to them clinching against Winnipeg. I'm not saying anyone is wrong or is a liar, just that I recall the ticket drive starting after the Winnipeg win. I know I got mine, and put my money down for my season tickets, on the Monday after the Winnipeg game.
The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have now clinched second place in the East Division and will host the Eastern Semi-Final against the Toronto Argonauts on Sunday, November 14 at Ivor Wynne Stadium at 1pm.
Tickets for the Eastern Semi-Final will be available for purchase on Saturday, October 30 at 9am by logging on to Ticats.ca, visiting the TigerTown Store at 1 Jarvis Street, or by calling 905-547-CATS (2287).
I have tried to find information on the site about playoff tickets for season ticket holders and couldn't find anything. Do any of you have any idea what the procedure is, how long they keep your seat available before selling it? etc. Is it dependant on you renewing. Left a msg yesterday but have not heard back from the club. Tks
