Canadian football fans have wasted little time getting their hands on tickets to the 100th Grey Cup championship, which will be held in Toronto next November.
Toronto's 100th Grey Cup Festival Committee offered an exclusive 100-hour nationwide general public access window to tickets, and more than 10,000 were locked up. Dedicated fans were able to place a $50 deposit per ticket, guaranteeing their place at this once-in-a-lifetime cultural and sporting event.
Toronto organizers said once the 100-hour window closes, no further tickets will be released until June of next year.
Fans can log onto www.100thgreycupfestival.ca and place a deposit on up to eight tickets during the 100 hour period, which takes place from Monday at 10am et/7am pt until Friday at 2pm et/11am pt.
