So they are preserving the old stadium? I thought they were tearing it down and building a new one next to it?

Also, a few years ago there were renderings of a stadium that basically looked like a Lucas Oil Stadium minature replica. I wish that design would have been chosen.

They are tearing the stadium down completely. They are going to build the new one to face North-South, the current is East-West. Everyone is pretty mad about the design because it doesn't look that different from the old one.

New Name & New Renderings

thespec.com - Goodbye Ivor Wynne Stadium, hello Tim Hortons Field

Hamilton's iconic coffee chain wins naming rights to the new Pan Am stadium. It will
replace the name of the stadium that once stood on the property, Ivor Wynne Stadium.








Among the new features:


•Four concourses, including two that will allow fans to see the playing field even when not in their seats.

•Two raised plazas in each end zone with a sports bar theme.

•Eighty per cent of seats between the goal lines with a minimum seat width of 21 inches, with larger seats in the club and suite sections. (The Rogers Centre seats are 19 inches wide.)

•A new scoreboard that's almost 25 per cent larger than the one at Ivor Wynne.

•A total of 1,010 club seats with two themed lounges, including one honouring former Ticat greats. The primary club lounge area will have a 100-yard view of the field.

•Six elevators and fully accessible seating throughout the stadium at all price points.

Yes, construction has started. The old Ivor Wynne Stadium was demolished last year and construction of the new stadium quickly followed.

The Tiger Cats are playing at the University of Guelph's Alumni Stadium until construction of the new stadium is complete next year.
