New measures take effect prior to Tiger-Cats home opener on Labour Day
In an effort to mitigate the continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Forge FC Hamilton, in partnership with the City of Hamilton, have announced that beginning Monday, September 6 at the Tiger-Cats home opener against the Toronto Argonauts, all employees, event staff and guests (ticket holders, credentialed media, etc.) will be required to provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result to gain access to Tim Hortons Field. Forge FC’s first home match under these new health and safety protocols will be Saturday, September 11 against York United FC.
Recognizing that Tim Hortons Field is a central gathering point for many Hamiltonians and others in the surrounding area, the Tiger-Cats and Forge FC will continue to put the health and safety of its employees, partners and fans at the forefront in an effort to provide a safe and secure environment at the stadium at all times. Further details on the implementation of these new health and safety protocols at Tim Hortons Field will be provided in the coming days/weeks.
As announced last week, Hamilton Public Health Services will be holding mobile COVID-19 vaccine clinics at Tim Hortons Field for the next three days during Tiger-Cats practices, beginning today from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Click HERE for more information on this unique opportunity for fans to get vaccinated, watch practice and win great prizes.
We collectively thank everyone for their patience, understanding and cooperation as we all continue to navigate through these difficult times together.
