Tiger-Cats football is back!

 

Almost.

 

Today the Canadian Football League announced the 2017 schedule thankfully allowing all of us to start thinking about warmer weather and another black and gold summer in Hamilton.

 

Your first chance to see the 2017 Tiger-Cats in live game action comes Thursday June 8th when they travel to Ottawa for a 7:30pm kickoff against the defending Grey Cup champion Redblacks. This marks the third straight season Ottawa and Hamilton will meet before the games truly count.

 

The first Ticats home preseason game will be Friday June 16th at 7:30pm against the Toronto Argonauts. Hamilton and Toronto meeting in the preseason for the second straight year means the two are guaranteed to square up at least four times in back-to-back seasons.

 

The start of the 2017 CFL season will feel very familiar for Tiger-Cats fans. The journey to the 105th Grey Cup begins at BMO Field in Toronto on Sunday June 25th. This is the last game of opening weekend and will kickoff at 4pm as the sun sets over the scene of the 2016 Grey Cup.

 

This season the Ticats drew the unenviable short straw of an early season bye week. Week two will be the earliest bye the Ticats have experienced in the last 15 years. Three times during that span (2005, 2014, 2015) Hamilton had a bye in week three. The average first bye for the Ticats since 2002 has come in week seven.

 

In week three Hamilton hits the road to visit New Mosaic Stadium in Regina. No shortage for storylines there. No Durant, ex-Riders quarterback, now Tiger-Cats head coach Kent Austin gets to experience the Roughriders new home and the two teams split the 2016 season series. That game is a 9:30pm eastern time kickoff on Saturday July 8th.

 

In week four the Tiger-Cats finally get to come home and play for their fans. In 2016 the Tiger-Cats went 44 days between home dates due to a bye week sandwiched inside four road games.

 

When the black and gold return to the donut box July 15th, it will be their first action in front of the home fans since June 16th’s preseason game against the Argonauts. A span of 29 days.

 

The long wait is rewarded with back-to-back home games. On Thursday July 20 - Just five days after their first home game - Hamilton will host Mike Reilly and the Edmonton Eskimos in a rematch of the 2016 East division semifinal which Hamilton lost 24-21 in front of a raucous crowd of nearly 25,000.

 

The home stand is not long lived though. In weeks six and seven the Tiger-Cats are off to Alberta for a pair of road games.

 

First, the 104th Grey Cup participation ribbon award winning Calgary Stampeders play host on Saturday July 29th before the Edmonton Eskimos welcome Hamilton to town for Friday night football on August 4th. Both games are late start times for Hamilton viewers and listeners. The Stampeders and Ticats will begin at 9:30pm eastern time while the Edmonton matchup begins at 10pm local Hamilton time.

 

In week eight the Ticats will host the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Saturday August 12th at 7:30pm before welcoming the Ottawa Redblacks to Hamilton on Friday August 18th.

 

Week ten will serve as the Tiger-Cats second and final scheduled bye week. It is the earliest Hamilton has experienced their final bye week since 2014 when the Ticats rested in week nine.

 

This sets up an unimpeded stretch of ten games from Labour Day to the end of the regular season where Hamilton will decide their playoff placing.

 

The Labour Day classic remains similar to last season with the Ticats hosting Toronto for a 6:30pm kickoff. The day has one small twist though.

 

The McMaster Marauders were unable to secure a home date for labour day - McMaster opens the season September 3rd against the Carleton Ravens in Ottawa on TSN 1150 Hamilton - so football day in Hamilton will not involve McMaster football directly but will incorporate many levels of youth football in the lead up to the big game at night.

 

Following the Labour Day classic Hamilton and Toronto will not play a rematch in Toronto the following week. The last time the two teams did not play against each other in the week following Labour Day was 2014 when Hamilton travelled to Montreal.

 

In place of the rematch game Hamilton will travel to Ottawa on September 6th for a 6pm kickoff in the Tiger-Cats and Redblacks second of three regular season meetings in 2017.

 

On Friday September 15th Hamilton is home again to Saskatchewan for a 7pm kickoff before making the trek West to Vancouver. On Friday September 22nd Hamilton will play at BC Place against the Lions. The location where Ticats QB Zach Collaros made his return from ACL knee surgery in 2016.

 

Week 15 will serve as the Labour Day rematch replacement game between the Argos and Ticats when Hamilton hosts Toronto on Saturday September 30th. Kickoff is set for 6:30pm.

 

In week 16 the Tiger-Cats are on the road again. This time to the scene of the late night lightning crime that was week seven of the 2016 season when a 2.5 hour lightning delay lead to a 37-11 beat down from the Blue Bombers. That game will start at 8:30pm eastern time.

 

The Ticats continue their long run of bye week free games on Friday October 13th when they welcome Bo Levi Mitchell and the Calgary Stampeders to town for a 7pm kickoff.

 

Hamilton finishes the regular season with two home games and a road date in Montreal against new Alouettes starting quarterback Darian Durant.

 

 

Tune in to Tatti and Marsh today from 3-7pm as we break down the CFL schedule and how it will impact each team across the CFL this season including your Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

All games are available on TSN 1150 Hamilton and TSN1150.ca
