The Canadian Football League and the Hamilton Tiger-Cats laid out their plans for the 110th Grey Cup game and Festival in Hamilton on Tuesday at the Grey Cup Launch Party at the Art Gallery of Hamilton.

Hamilton Tiger-Cats play-by-play announcer RJ Broadhead sat down with Caretaker Bob Young to discuss this year’s celebration.

“Grey Cups are always special, but a Grey Cup in Hamilton where we can plan it and we’re working with the city and the province to put on quite a party only 90 days from now is great.” Said Young.

“We’re easily the best kept secret in the country. Everyone sort of knows where Hamilton is, but we don’t think of ourselves as a tourist destination and we should be a tourist destination. With the cities help we are taking over all of the great tourist locations: The LiUNA Station, Armoury and the The James Street Corridor, ” Young mentioned when asked why fans should come to this year’s Grey Cup.

When speaking about the pride he feels in being able to host this year’s festivities, Young, touched on his Hamilton roots.

“As a Hamiltonian, as a kid who grew up in Ancaster and took the bus downtown to the dentist, you know, it’s just such a pleasure to see our city prosper and doing well and be in a position to hold such a successful national event.”

This year’s 110th Grey Cup will take place on November 19th at Tim Hortons Field.
