In celebration of Canadians across the country rallying behind the National Basketball League’s Toronto Raptors and their drive to win the 2019 NBA Championship, the Canadian Football League is moving up the start time of the June 13 game in Hamilton between the Tiger-Cats and Saskatchewan Roughriders to 7 p.m. EDT from 7:30 p.m. EDT.
During the game, select televisions around Tim Hortons Field will switch to the beginning of Game 6 of the NBA Finals between the Raptors and Golden State Warriors at 9 p.m. The Tiger-Cats will also open the gates to the public following the conclusion of the team’s home opener for fans and community members to view the remainder of TSN’s live broadcast of the Raptors game for free.
The entire stadium, including the field itself, will be accessible for everyone to watch the remainder of the game on the team’s 3,400 square foot video board.
It’s a very exciting time to be a sports fan in Canada with the start of the CFL season and the Toronto Raptors making their mark on Canadian sports history with this amazing run,? said Matt Afinec, President and Chief Operating Officer of the Tiger-Cats.
“With our home opener aligning with Game 6 of the NBA Finals, there’s no better way to celebrate than to open the gates at Tim Hortons Field after the Ticats game and create our version of ‘Jurassic Park’ at Tim Hortons Field.?
See you on Thursday night!
