The news is out, and finally it’s official. As was reported first by the Sabres North Twitter account back in August, the Sabres are headed to their third outdoor game. This time, against international and Niagara Falls sharing rivals, the Toronto Maple Leafs.
The game will be played at the Hamilton Tiger-Cats Canadian Football League stadium on March 13th 2022, aptly named Tim Hortons Field. For those who cannot make the trek or afford the likely inflated price from the poor saps that are Maple Leafs fans, the game will be televised on TNT, Sportsnet and TVA Sports @ 3pm EST.
If you’re feeling lucky (punk?), four tickets are available to win. Register before New Years Eve (31st of December) and winners will be announced on 5th of January. If you’re a brave soul who’s kept their season tickets throughout this decade, you get some perks as well.
All Season Ticket Members and partial plan holders will be offered a presale opportunity. All ticket sales details will be announced at a later date. Season Ticket Members will receive additional communication on Friday, September 17 with adjustments to their payment or payment plan, reflecting this game.
Lucky for us, our game is not by far the worst of the outdoor matchups this season. Blues vs. Wild and Preds vs. Lightning are the other two, so there’s a good shot Granato can put on a good show with this roster.
