Hall of Fame statue finds new home in Hamilton

The iconic “Touchdown” sculpture that has sat in front of the Canadian Football Hall of Fame beside Hamilton City Hall since 1972 was moved to its new home at Tim Hortons Field on Wednesday.

The hall closed at that location in 2015 owing to lack of attendance and the new location is expected to draw more visitors.

An agreement between the CFL and the city was approved by councillors in 2016 that will see a replica Grey Cup displayed in the stadium’s main lobby, the creation of what is being called Legends Row on the fourth-level concourse, and the installation of Media Hall of Fame artifacts situated at the press-box level.
