Hamilton to host Eastern Final November 17 at Tim Hortons Field
The Hamilton Tiger-Cats officially clinched first place in the Canadian Football League’s East Division Saturday after the Montreal Alouettes’ 35-24 road loss to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. The Ticats have now earned a bye into the Eastern Final and will host the game at Tim Hortons Field on Sunday, November 17 at 1 p.m.
With just three weeks remaining in the CFL’s 2019 regular season schedule, the Tiger-Cats (12-3-0, 24 points) sit atop the CFL standings and eight points ahead of the East Division’s second-place Alouettes (8-7-0, 16 points). Hamilton’s 12 wins has already tied a franchise record for most wins in a season set in 1989 (12-6-0) and equaled in 1998 (12-5-1).
The 2019 Eastern Final at Tim Hortons Field will mark the sixth time in the last seven seasons (2013-2019) the Tiger-Cats have hosted a playoff game. Hamilton will host the Eastern Final for the first time since 2014 and only the third time since 1998.
