Commented Argonauts’ Executive Chairman and CEO Chris Rudge, “We are pleased to bring our fans a home schedule with competitive matchups and variety. The intermingling of weeknight and weekend dates accommodates the many needs of our audience and we are thrilled once again to close the home regular season against the Tiger-Cats on Fan Appreciation Night. Overall, the 2012 schedule affords our football team a regular training schedule and the competitive advantage of playing at home down the final stretch.  We look forward to Toronto residents joining us to cheer on the Double Blue as we strive to win the Grey Cup at home for the first time in 60 years.”
