As I wrote last Sunday, work did indeed begin this week on adding temporary seating for the upcoming CFL season. Tower Scaffolding has begun by constructing temporary seats in the north-west corner of the stadium [sections 107 & 108 in the Ticats seating chart at bottom of post]. Preparations are being made for construction of the largest section of new seats on the east side of the field – i.e. the Hill.
The Guelph Mercury carried a brief story on the project this week – Transformation of Alumni Stadium begins to prepare for Ticats. Meanwhile, the Spectator’s Drew Edwards has some excellent photos on his Scratching Post blog.
