Empire Communities has partnered with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats to give homebuyers and football fans behind-the-scenes access and exclusive football experiences throughout the 2018 CFL season. As one of Ontario’s leading homebuilders, Empire has built over 12,000 new homes and condos throughout Toronto, Southwestern Ontario and the southern United States since its inception in 1993. With many of its master-planned communities located in and around the Hamilton area, the Tiger-Cats have always been its local team.

“Empire has been long-time supporters of community events and local sports teams in the communities we build in, so we are very excited to be working with the Tiger-Cats to bring our homeowners unprecedented access through the 2018 season,” says Sue MacKay, VP of Marketing at Empire Communities. “Local sports have a positive impact on community togetherness, overall wellness and local pride, which is why a partnership that brings our homeowners and their local team closer together was such an amazing opportunity for us to be
part of.”
