In a letter to Mayor Fred Eisenberger, Hamilton Tiger-Cats owner Bob Young says he would consider an Aberdeen-Longwood stadium location.
You can read the text of the letter.
In the letter, Young argues that the Aberdeen-Longwood site presents >the essential sports stadium requirements of: highway exposure, access and egress for stadium visitors, public transit, and being situated in a commercial/industrial area conducive to hosting as many large audience events as possible without disruption to a neighbouring residential community.
Young had previously expressed interest in the west-end site.
The site is currently slated as planned employment lands to accommodate spin-off businesses established through the McMaster Innovation Park project on Longwood Rd.
