Less than 3,000 tickets left for Grey Cup in Edmonton

The Edmonton Eskimos are closing in on selling out the Grey Cup.

In 2010, the last time the Grey Cup was played in Edmonton, the game sold out six days after general public tickets went on sale when 63,317 showed up to watch the Montreal Alouettes beat the Saskatchewan Roughriders 21-18.

Last year’s Grey Cup in Ottawa was announced as a sellout in October at 36,000. Two seasons ago when Toronto hosted ticket prices were slashed in October in an effort to fill BMO Field, 33,421 people came through the gates. And there was the Pizza Pizza gaffe. The last time a West city hosted was 2015, Winnipeg sold the final tickets on the day of the game to pack Investors Group Field.

2018 marks the 40th anniversary of Commonwealth Stadium and the 70th year of the Eskimos franchise and Edmonton seems well on the way to a sellout.
