“You have to be elated — because all of the teams will play all of the games here,” Those were the words of Mayor Bob Bratina as he announced to his colleagues, the fact that Hamilton will host all men’s and women’s Pan Am soccer games , including the championship games at the new Ivor Wynne. This is something of a victory for Hamilton, as initial plans called for a sharing of these games between Burlington and Toronto.
More details are to follow, but 48 games are estimated to be played here. For more details, see Spec article here, or purchase the print version.
Are you pleased that Hamilton has landed these games?
