ARGOS CLINCH HOME PLAYOFF DATE, FIRST-EVER PLAYOFF GAME AT BMO FIELD

Friday, October 13, 2017 — With a Hamilton Tiger-Cats loss to the Calgary Stampeders on Friday night, the Toronto Argonauts have clinched the first-ever home playoff game at BMO Field.

The Argos have locked up a home playoff game but the remainder of the regular season will determine whether they host the Eastern Semi-Final on November 12 or the Eastern Final on November 19.

A win against the Eskimos on Saturday paired with an Ottawa Redblacks loss or tie on Friday night would allow the Argos to clinch first place in the East Division, ensure a first-round bye in the playoffs, and lock up the right to host the Eastern Final on November 19.

Playoff tickets will be available for purchase on Monday, October 16, in a pre-sale for season-seat holders and Argos/CFL partners. Playoff tickets will go on-sale to the general public on Friday, October 20.
