The seats are wide. Stadium has a great view of the true "steel town" that #hamont is known for. Fly overs are great at the game. Sure, stadium lines ups for drinks and food can be long, but you can bring your own food as long as it is in a clear bag, so you save $. Have sat all over the stadium, and there is not a bad seat in the place. Be prepared to hike up 13 flights of stairs if you sit in the 200 level. And if you choose east side seats instead of west, you'll be in the sun a lot longer (good to know for the hot summer nights). Also, park at the Home Hardware ($15 as of 2017) on Barton. Two blocks in, and an easy out when the game is over.

Beautiful new stadium of the Hamilton Ticats! The views from the upper levels are incredible. The fans are extremely dedicated! (Shhhh... the team isn't doing very well this year...)

Expect your usual higher pricing for drinks & snacks. Very limited parking. In fact expect to park on the street (or pay to park on a nearby resident's lawn). Best bet is to take the bus. Bonus is you can ride for free by showing your game day ticket to the driver!

Lord of fun community events throughout the year. You can also rent the stadium/areas of too.

Check weather forecast before you go to event! Persons with disabilities beware!

There was a group of us at the labour day classic football game when the game was stopped due to lightening and rain.

We appreciate that the game was stopped to protect us. However, we were told to move to the concourse to wait out the storm.

The concourse was in terrible condition. Who would have thought that it's a new building! The roof was leaking so we continued to get wet. We were all crowded together and unable to move. The people moving were drunk and pushy.

Persons with disabilities are not accommodated here in an emergency situation. There were a few individuals in wheelchairs who were unable to go anywhere.

Announcements were made on the loud speaker while we were stuck in the concourse. However, we were unable to hear them as the speaker didn't work indoors.

We decided to leave and not wait out the storm. We won't be back.

This stadium is a huge improvement on the stadium that it replaced but when compared to other new stadia it pales in comparison. Being in a residential neighborhood negatively affects parking and restaurant and bar access pre and post event BUT it provides atmosphere that you don't see elsewhere. I love the new alignment of the field and views of the city from the stands, stairs and balconies. Seats are comfortable. Food choices and concessions are poor.

Have been to 3 or 4 CFL games at tge stadium.
Easy to get use using Ticats bus from various points.
North end zone area opens before other gates. Bbq sandwich and beer available there. Once in there you can get to the rest of the stadium areas one hour before kickoff.
Decent selection for beers. Tall can will cost 10 or 11 dollars. Like most stadiums it costs more.
Sight lines for game are great. All stairs though instead of ramps. The elevators are for the folks who need them more than me.
Now if only the Ticats were better.
