Does anyone know why the latest figures put out by council/ODC announced the new Hamilton Stadium would seat only 22,500?
A few months previous to this disclosure, the same agencies disclosed seating for 25,000 from the current approx 30,000 yet even recently dropped that figure down to 22,500. Why the low total?
Why such a dramatic decrease of 7,5000 when Labor Day, playoffs, and Grey Cup games would require additional seating to accommodate demand?
And if the Cats had formidable winning seasons,(dare to dream) 27,000+ average wouldn’t be out of the question, thus it does seem to be a non sequitur to build a 22,500 seat stadium which would easily make it the smallest venue in the CFL.
