Hamilton Tiger-Cats Tickets
The Hamilton Tiger-Cats has been one of the pillars of the CFL since it formed in 1950 from the merging of the Hamilton Tigers and the Hamilton Wildcats. The oldest Hamilton football team can trace its roots back to 1869 when it first adopted the iconic black and yellow, and the city has fielded a team almost every year since. Hamilton has won eight Grey Cups as the Tiger-Cats, while the city itself has captured 15 Grey Cups throughout the history of Canadian football. The team had a particularly dominant stretch in the 1950s and 1960s when it won five championships and appeared in five more title games. Its battles against Winnipeg between 1957 and 1962 often came down to the wire. Hamilton can also claim to be the only CFL team that has ever beaten a current NFL franchise with a 38-21 win over the Buffalo Bills in 1961. Get your Hamilton Tiger-Cats tickets at StubHub.

Dedicated fans note that Quarterback Damon Allen has played on both sides of this rivalry over the years. As a member of the Tiger-Cats, he led the team to a 27-24 victory in 1992.
