Calgary Stampeders home opener brings huge party to McMahon Stadium

Jun 29 2017, 6:55 pm

It’s game day in Calgary and a big one at that.

The Grey Cup re-match kicks off at 7pm tonight with the Stamps taking on the champs on home field.

Ottawa beat Calgary in overtime 33 – 39 to reign as the Grey Cup 2016 winners, and the Stamps are looking to put today’s game in the win column.

The two team already met in Week 1 at Ottawa’s TD Place Stadium and the result was a 31-31 tie.

Fans can get pumped up at Mahon before the game with food trucks, a DJ and player autographs. In the fan zone, wide receiver DaVaris Daniels and defensive lineman Ja’Gared Davis will be signing autographs from 5 to 6pm.

Before the game, mini Canadian flags will be handed out to fans to wave during the National Anthem.

Sugarfoot Anderson will also be commemorated tonight, with Coaches and players wearing their Canada 150 t-shirts honouring Sugarfoot Anderson during warm-ups.
