HAMILTON - The venue might be different, but Henry Burris is expecting the same, boisterous Hamilton Tiger-Cats fans.
Hamilton will make its home debut Sunday at Alumni Stadium in Guelph, Ont., when it hosts the Edmonton Eskimos.
The Ticats are playing their home games in Guelph this season while a new stadium is being built where their former home, Ivor Wynne Stadium, once stood.
The Hamilton club is expecting to move into the new venue in time for the 2014 CFL season.
The Ticats played an exhibition game in Guelph on June 20, defeating the Winnipeg Blue Bombers 52-0 before 12,732 spectators, just short of the facility's expanded seating capacity of 13,000.
Playing the Ticats at Ivor Wynne Stadium was always difficult for visiting teams partly because they also had to endure the wrath of Hamilton's enthusiastic supporters, something Burris expects to carry over to the CFL club's temporary new home.
