"We look forward to continuing our support of the Ticats, our long-time partner, and celebrate all that football and our community heroes bring to the city."
The partnership renewal with the team extends through the 2016 season. Over the course of the partnership, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Scotiabank will provide a range of fan initiatives and community programs, including the Scotiabank Game Changer program. The Scotiabank Game Changer program honours dedicated citizens for 'changing the game' in their local communities and recognizes the commitment and passion it takes to effect positive change.
