The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have sold out the Labour Day Classic against the Toronto Argonauts, the team announced Thursday.

The game is slated to be played on Monday, September 5 in at Tim Hortons Field, marking the fourth and final meeting between the two storied rivals in a five-week span. The clash between the two teams will be the subject of an hour-long documentary to be released later this year.

In addition to the entertainment on the field, the Ticats have also revealed that multi-time Juno Award nominee Tim Hicks will perform for the crowd at halftime.

The sellout marks the third league-wide for the CFL’s historical rivalry games. The Saskatchewan Roughriders have announced a sellout for their own Labour Day Classic, whilst their opponent, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, will have a capacity crowd for the Banjo Bowl rematch.

Despite the announced sellout, a handful of additional tickets have been released for the standing room social section in the endzone.

The Argonauts currently sit atop the East Division with a record of 5-5, while the Tiger-Cats are battling to get back into the playoff picture at 3-8. Toronto currently leads the season series 2-1.
