The city of Hamilton, Ontario hosts the 2015 Pan Am Soccer Tournament inside a new, state of the art venue.
CIBC Hamilton Pan Am Soccer Stadium
The new venue stands on those grounds of a previous Hamilton Icon, Ivor Wynne Stadium. Originally built for the 1930 Empire Games, Ivor Wynne Stadium was primarily used to host football for the CFL Hamilton Tiger Cats. The Wynne hosted the Tiger Cats and hosted the Grey Cup three times. It is hallowed ground for Hamilton, and even as the stadium began to show its age it has been a focal point of the Hamilton community for close to a century.
In the billion-dollar development that’s upgrading Ontario for the Pan Am Games in 2015, the Ivor Wynne stadium has been completely redeveloped from the ground up. Currently it’s officially titled the Tim Hortons Field, but the stadium will be known as the CIBC Hamilton Soccer Stadium for the games. Designed to boast a friendlier façade than the concrete barriers and wood benches of the Ivor Wynne Stadium, the new venue is styled as a ‘neighbourhood stadium’ fit for modern international events. The stadium is prepped to become a venue for various sports and concerts just like the Ivor Wynne in its glory days.
Pan Am Soccer Teams
- Trinidad and Tobago
- Costa Rica
All of Pan Am’s soccer events will be held at the Hamilton venue. Eight teams are expected to compete from across North and South America, many of the teams showcasing fresh young talent. The Canadian woman’s team currently rules the roost, rising to champion status at the 2011 Pan Am Games in Guadalajara. Tickets for the soccer events are already among the fastest-selling in the lead-up to the Pan Am Games, so for anyone still able to get a ticket the stands will likely be full and the atmosphere will be electric.
