CFL moves up start time of Ticats game, will show NBA Finals game 6 on videoboard

The CFL has changed the time of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats  home opener kick-off to accommodate game 6 of the NBA Finals.

The Ticats will now kickoff this Thursday at 7 p.m. instead of 7:30 p.m.

Following the game Tim Hortons Field will open the gates to the public so they can watch remainder of the Raptors take on the Golden State Warriors on the team’s 3,400 square foot video board, free of charge.

“It’s a very exciting time to be a sports fan in Canada with the start of the CFL season and the Toronto Raptors making their mark on Canadian sports history with this amazing run,” said Matt Afinec, President and Chief Operating Officer of the Tiger-Cats. “With our home opener aligning with Game 6 of the NBA Finals, there’s no better way to celebrate than to open the gates at Tim Hortons Field after the Ticats game and create our version of ‘Jurassic Park’ at Tim Hortons Field.”

There are a limited number of tickets left for the home opener where the Tiger-Cats will take on the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
