Tiger- Cats' origins begin as far back as 1869, when the Hamilton Football Club was formed. In 1950, two Hamilton-based football
teams (the Tigers and the Flying Wildcats) amalgamated to form one CFL team, called the Tiger-Cats. Since then, the Tiger-Cats
have enjoyed prolific success in the CFL, regularly appearing in Grey Cup Championships and winning over a dozen regular season
championships. Tim Hortons Stadium is the home stadium of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the atmosphere on game days is nothing
short of electric. See the Tiger-Cats as they take on the best teams in the CFL including East Division rivals including the
Toronto Argonauts, the Montreal Alouettes, and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
The Canadian Football League
Canadian Football League is the cream of the crop when it comes to Canadian football and is the second oldest professional
football league in North America, trailing only the NFL. The CFL was founded back in 1958 and consists of nine teams split
up into two conferences, East and West. The Canadian Football League is second only to the NHL in terms of popularity in Canada
and CFL games are some of the most exciting sporting events in the country. The Saskatchewan Roughriders are the defending
champions in 2014 after winning their fourth Grey Cup in 2013 and have gone through the entire season with a big target on
their backs. Nevertheless, the Roughriders are in prime position to make it back to the playoffs where all of the other big
time CFL teams like the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, the Toronto Argonauts, the Montreal Alouettes, the Ottawa Redblacks, the Calgary
Stampeders, the Edmonton Eskimos, the BC Lions, and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
fans are certainly some of the most excitable sports fans in the world, but nothing quite matches the passion surrounding
the Canadian Football League, and Hamilton Tiger-Cats fans are definitely among the most vociferous and dedicated fans in
the entire CFL. On game day at Tim Hortons Field, fans make their way into the stadium and find their seats when suddenly
the chanting and cheering begins. As the clock ticks down closer and closer to the opening kick off the crowd works itself
into a frenzy. At last both teams are prepared for kick off and the action really begins. Bone rattling, thunderous hits,
incredible displays of agility and speed, tremendous passes and catches, and powerful runs set the arena on fire for the following
four quarters of world class football. By the time the final whistle blows your voice is hoarse and your palms are stinging
from clapping and giving high fives and you will already be planning a return trip to Tim Hortons Field.
decades, the CFL was actually a rugby league, and the CFL as it's known today wasn't officially organized until 1956. The
Hamilton Tiger-Cats have won 8 Grey Cup championships including an impressive run in the Sixties when they won the championship
in 1963, 1965, and 1967.
