Fans To Have The Chance To Own A Piece Of History
With the storied history of Ivor Wynne Stadium soon to come to an end, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats will be offering fans the chance to take a part of it along with them.
The iconic home of the Tiger-Cats since 1950 – built as Civic Stadium in 1928 – hosted two Grey Cups, two outdoor hockey games and a number of concerts that included high-profile artists such as Pink Floyd, Rush and The Tragically Hip throughout its 84-year tenure.
The upcoming demolition of the current stadium makes a host of memorabilia – including stadium signage, seats, tables and chairs – available to the public.
The Tiger-Cats will be offering these pieces for purchase through several outlets, with the proceeds from the sale being forwarded to the Ivor Wynne Community Fund – a cooperative effort with the City of Hamilton designed to develop community projects within the stadium neighbourhood.
Those interested in preserving their stadium seat may purchase it and have it removed, by clicking here.
This offer will also feature a stadium yard sale hosted by the Tiger-Cats on a yet to be specified date in November, which will oversee the sale of items including chairs, tables and washroom signage.
The date of the sale is dependent upon the playoff schedule to be set by the CFL.
Individual items of memorabilia will be included in an online auction hosted at stores.ebay.com/IvorWynneCollectibles from November 21st to December 5th, 2012.
Pieces included in the auction will include sectional signage, the Ivor Wynne Stadium signage, press box seating and assorted Tiger-Cats memorabilia.
