Hamilton's New Stadium Will Be Called Tim Hortons Field
Double the Double-Double fun

Here’s some Canadiana overload sure to make you do a double-double take. According to an anonymous source from the CFL, good ol’ Timmy Ho’s has purchased the naming rights for the new stadium being constructed in Hamilton, which will replace the 84-year-old Ivor Wynne Stadium. Tim Hortons Field will open in time to house the local Tiger-Cats for their 2014 season, and for the soccer event during the 2015 Pan-Am games.

Quick Stats, Eh?:

  • Cost is hovering around $145.7 million, or 2.35 million Timbits / 23.5 million large iced-capps
  • Will hold 22,500, who will all be holding Double-Doubles in hand, resulting in a full stadium usage of 45,000 packets of cream.
  • As of March 31, Tim Hortons had 4,288 systemwide restaurants, including 3,453 in Canada and 808 in the U.S.
  • At least it’s a better name than the Canadian Tire Centre, which surprisingly does not actually sell tires.

Read on for Ron James’s and Rose Reisman’s less than positive thoughts on the chain, and find out just how many pounds that Double-Double is costing you per year here
