I really like BMO for football. Very intimate, cool looking with those canopies. Those metal floors on the upper west side sure do make it loud when the fans up there were stomping. I was in comfortable seats that were even cushioned with backs - but I have sat in the bowl plastic seats others have mentioned. Our seats also gave us access to the Rogers Club under the stands and it was quite nice too. You could hear the PA announcer and music they played clearly and crisply - loud - but not too loud
Real grass looks great, food choices were good. Food I had (hot dog and poutine) - were hot - so no complaints there. Yes the use of the video board is lame.
Certainly could have used a better effort from the Cats - and it would have been nice if about 10,000 more people were there - as it was pretty empty in places.
Some shots I took.
The Rogers Club
The sparse crowd on the east side. This taken with 10 minutes left in the 4th quarter - so this was as crowded as it got.
The real grass looks to be in great shape
Great sightlines - and close to the players
I assume they will start building the temporary seat structure behind those south endzone seats soon
It really is a much more impressive looking stadium with the canopies
You can see where the artificial turf meets the real grass at the goal line in this shot taken as I was heading for the GO Train.
