Bob Young issues letter to Ticats fans, partners

HAMILTON — Following the announcement from the CFL that there will be no football played in the fall and that the league is shifting its focus to 2021, the following letter was issued Monday by Caretaker Bob Young to fans and partners of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats Football Club:

Dear Tiger-Cat Fans and Partners,

By now you will have received the news that we will not be playing CFL football in 2020. Obviously we are all very disappointed, most of all for our players, our loyal season seat holders and corporate partners, and Ticat fans everywhere.

Hamilton Tiger-Cat Football has endured more than 150 years and as Caretakers it is our mission to ensure it prospers for another 150. So the focus is now the future, and what will be a crucial year for the CFL, 2021, and the incredible opportunity  of reuniting our great fans across the country and around the world by celebrating the 2021 Grey Cup in Hamilton.

Throughout the course of today and the coming days you will be receiving a series of correspondence of what happens next. We are committed to over communicating to you because, simply put, we cannot do this without you. We understand our fans and partners are the true “owners” of the team. Now more than ever, I and the Ticats organization will roll up our sleeves and get to work. We are proud of our role as the Caretakers of your Hamilton Tiger-Cats. With your help the Tiger-Cats will get through this as we have overcome previous challenges.

Thank you.


Bob Young

The Caretaker
