I was down in the area of Tim Hortons Field today and you would not have a clue that was the name of the stadium any more as everything is now CIBC Pan Am signage. It actually looks quite colourful and festive.
The trilingual temporary name of THF
Most of the south plaza is now all fenced in with all kinds of banners and tents
Scotiabank Gate? CIBC says No!
White tape or black cloths cover anything Tim Hortons
Tents, sponsor displays and all the flags on the south patio
No more ugly eyesore Scott Park - Yay!
More of the Pan Am signage
View from the corner of Balsam and Cannon
No sign of Tim Hortons here on the wall facing Balsam
From the northeast corner. Direct Energy gate sign also covered up.
Looks like a temp Bell cell tower set up there
Some Club seats turned into press seats
Trailers that I saw some security people coming and going from and tents on the north patio too.
Streets around the stadium beginning to be blocked off
Even the Tim Hortons Field sign on the back of the Inaugural Season wall is taped over - lol
I'll be going to a couple of nights of soccer when Canada is playing. Supposedly tickets for the men's Canada games are going fairly well and the men's final has sold out but some of the preliminary games so far look to have fewer than 5,000 tickets sold. Hopefully they get decent walkups each day because the tickets are really quite cheap especially for kids and seniors.
And this last picture the view from the balcony of my new place on Queen North. Gonna be easy getting to Ti-Cats games now - a quick bike ride along the Cannon Street bike lanes and I'm there in no time.
