This unprecedented move ensures All Access members are the first to receive details on players protected by the Tiger-Cats on the team’s negotiation list, kept confidential until today. Released in a series of in-depth videos over the coming weeks, each episode will feature a scouting report and detailed information on two-to-three players as described by Tiger-Cats’ General Manager of Personnel Eric Tillman and Assistant General Managers Drew Allemang and Shawn Burke.
“This initiative is consistent with our mandate to find new and innovative ways to engage with our fans and provide unique content through our digital platforms,” said Scott Mitchell, Chief Executive Officer of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. “It’s a great opportunity for Tiger-Cats fans to learn more about the team’s prospect pool and potential future players.”
Each CFL team has a negotiation list, or neg list, consisting of 45 players they have exclusive rights to negotiate a contract with. It serves as a way of acquiring player rights for international players and non-drafted national players. A player on any of the team’s neg lists is only permitted to negotiate a CFL contract with that team, but it does not prevent the player from signing with a team in another league. Names can be added, removed or traded off of a team’s list at any given time. Players who qualify as CFL veterans (appeared on a game roster, reserve list or injury list for seven games) are ineligible to be placed on a neg list.
Ticats All Access is a free-to-join membership program open to all fans that provides exclusive content, discounts, experiences and prizes to members. In partnership with Stadium Digital, the All Access platform has also offered fans a unique opportunity to engage with the team during home games at Tim Hortons Field and when the team is on the road over the past two seasons. Members accumulate “yards” for watching and reading content, making ticket and retail purchases and interacting with the club on social media. Yards can then be redeemed for prizes and contest entries, in addition to other promotions and exclusive offers. Fans who aren’t already members can sign up online at https://allaccess.ticats.ca.
