The 105th Grey Cup presented by Shaw is all about the fans. On Wednesday, the Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group and the Grey Cup Festival team announced another fan engagement initiative calling on Canadians from coast-to-coast-to-coast. From April 12 through May 16, Canadians can submit their artwork to have their design featured on the game tickets of the 105th Grey Cup presented by Shaw on November 26 at TD Place when RNation welcomes Our Nation.
“The Grey Cup game brings together families and friends across Canada for many reasons,” said John Mathers, OSEG’s VP Ticketing and Marketing. “It’s a Canadian tradition that stirs emotions and inspires us to share the moment and create memories that can last a lifetime. We know there are creative and talented fans in all parts of our nation and I’m eager to see how they express their passion for the Grey Cup game in their design submissions.”
Fans are invited to click here to review the submission guidelines and download the ticket templates and required ticketing elements and submit their ticket design, in required formats, to Contest@GreyCupFestival105.ca no later that 11:59 p.m. (ET) on May 16.
“We want the fans to be part of everything that we do – from the ticket design to the Grey Cup Festival committee to the bands that perform at the Festival – the Grey Cup is Canada’s Cup and we’re excited to see the designs submitted from across Canada for the event that will put an exclamation point on a year-long celebration of our country,” said Bernie Ashe, CEO at OSEG.
