Tourist Spot Arena / Stadium
Tim Hortons Field is a multi-purpose stadium in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. The stadium is a Canadian football stadium that replaced Ivor Wynne Stadium and a soccer venue for the 2015 Pan American Games, which were hosted by Toronto and the surrounding Greater Golden Horseshoe region. During the Pan American Games, it was referred to as CIBC Hamilton Pan Am Soccer Stadium. The stadium opened in September 2014. Its original anticipated completion date was June 30, 2014.Stadium developmentInitial plans for the stadium were for it to be a principal Pan American stadium for soccer and track and field/athletics events. However, disputes between the Tiger-Cats owner, Bob Young, the organizers of the 2015 Pan American Games, and the City of Hamilton arose over the location of the stadium, among other things, including whether or not a running track should be built around the proposed stadium in Hamilton.In 2012, the 2015 Pan-Am organizers indicated that, due to financial constraints, they would be shifting their focus toward venues and "clusters" that could be used for multiple events, which might eliminate the need for a new stadium that would be used only for soccer, and they proposed another stadium on the campus of York University, tentatively named York Athletics Stadium, to host the track and field events. That, coupled with a scheduling process that had soccer and rugby sevens events on different days (thus opening the possibility that Toronto's BMO Field, which would house the rugby sevens contests in 2015 and might also be able to host the soccer contests), had the potential to put the Hamilton stadium project in jeopardy. Nonetheless, the Hamilton stadium project went forward as planned.

  • No parking. Sketchy neighbourhood. No where to eat or drink before or after game. Who builds a new stadium here?  more »
  • We hadn't been to a CFL game in quite a while and decided to go last August. We enjoyed the venue and the game.  more »

  • Nice new Stadium. Saw Billy Talent there. Seats are nice and comfortable. They did a nice job on the new Stadium. It will always be Ivor Wynn to me
  • We sat on the furthest left seats and even they were great. Sun was behind us so the stage was very visible and the security and staff did a good job keeping order of the event.
  • Friendly, helpful staff. The Ti-cat express is a great way to attend a CFL game. Park for free at a nearby pick up location and ride the bus for free to the game.
  • We enjoyed the Vanier Cup here and will most definitely return. I've been here twice and have enjoyed the view from two totally different locations.
  • Everything was good but the line to get in was too slow
