The Hamilton Tiger-Cats will let their fans pick their first offensive play from scrimmage during a game Oct. 7 against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
People will be able to vote on the possible plays via the team’s website. And Ticats head coach Marcel Bellefeuille plans on giving fans plenty of choices when it comes to the play selection.
“We don’t want to limit the fans, just like we don’t want to limit our players,” Bellefeuille said during a conference call with reporters on Wednesday. “I think the list will have to be fairly extensive and somewhat creative to really put a little bit of moxie behind what we’re trying to do and not make it just one of those ornamental type of things. We’ll give them lots of opportunity and we’ll put some creativity in there.”
The play will not be the only thing the fans can vote on as part of the club’s “Your game, your rules” promotion.
“That game they’ll be selecting everything, from the ticket deals to the player uniforms to the music to the cheerleader routines, concession deals, and the merchandise deals at the stadium that day so just a chance for our fans to engage with us and really dictate their own experience at the game that day,” said Ticats president Scott Mitchell.
