The best way to ensure tickets to the 100th Grey Cup is by being an Argos season ticket holder. Argos season ticket holders will receive first access, ahead of the general public, to their same seats or equivalent. Those who hold season seats for both the 2011 and 2012 Argos seasons before the September 16 deadline will be able to purchase not only their own seats to the 100th Grey Cup game, but also two additional tickets for each season seat held. For example, someone who holds four Argonauts season tickets will be able to purchase those four seats plus an additional eight Grey Cup tickets, ahead of the public sale date! Additionally, Argos season ticket holders will be rewarded with $100 off 100th Grey Cup tickets for each Argos season seat they hold (discount available for Double Blue and Platinum price levels only).
"Argos season tickets have been in our family for years," said Scot Martin, Partner at Blair Franklin Capital Partners. "I am thrilled that they have put together such an amazing offer for access to 100th Grey Cup tickets for Argos season ticket holders. I know that this historic game, and the tremendous festival that will envelop Grey Cup week, will animate the streets of Toronto and residents of the GTA like never before."
One person who attends the Argos 2011 home opener on July 23 at Rogers Centre will become the first person to be guaranteed a pair of tickets to the 100th Grey Cup game. One lucky fan of the Double Blue will be chosen through a random draw at the game to receive the first pair of tickets to this once-in-a-lifetime event. Fans are encouraged to show their colours on July 23 for a chance to win.
The 100th Grey Cup Festival, to be held in Toronto in 2012, is an Invitation to Our Nation, uniting Canadians from coast-to-coast in Toronto for a nine-day, ten-night festival encompassing over 50 events ranging from traditional team parties, galas and player awards to a football film festival and family fun zone at great venues including the Metro Toronto Convention Centre and Yonge-Dundas Square. Complete with street closures, entertainment and activities, the 100th Grey Cup is a sport and cultural celebration like none before. The 100th Grey Cup will be played on Sunday, November 25, 2012 at Rogers Centre.
