A new Stipley experience is coming to Tim Hortons Field in 2024, enhancing the best-in-class fan engagement at the city’s social hub. Hamilton’s newest landmark, flanked by twin 20-foot hammers, pays homage to the city’s civic nickname and is highlighted by 10 new food and beverage windows and an expanded retail kiosk alongside a permanent stage that will showcase live performances pre-game and at halftime of every Ticats home game.  

The 18,000 sq. ft. social space is free to enter for all fans in attendance and features exclusive food & beverage options including $5 beers and $6 Cottage Springs for an hour after gates open. The already in-progress build will be complete for the Tiger-Cats home opener on June 16 when the Saskatchewan Roughriders come to town.
