Tim Hortons Stadium not quite ready to host football

New stadium in Hamilton may not be ready for the Labour Day Classic...

Fans are crossing their fingers to be able to see a game again in Hamilton.

A new football stadium in Hamilton, that was supposed to be open in June but thanks to delays, it still hasn't been given the go-ahead for hosting a game.

And now, the annual tradition, the Labour Day Classic, the CFL game between the Toronto Argonauts and the Hamilton TigerCats- could be in jeopardy.

The city of Hamilton still hasn't given an occupancy permit for the stadium.

That may not come until Sunday afternoon at the latest.

The main stumbling block appears to be the lack of hand rails and guard rails.

But building inspectors will be on site through the weekend, to give the last minute approvals to try and save the game.

If approval is not granted, then the game could be held on Tuesday in Hamilton,  or even get pushed to Toronto, also on Tuesday.
