As the legendary Grey Cup arrives in Hamilton this week, Tim Hortons is celebrating the momentous occasion with some grey cups of its own.
Starting Wednesday (Dec. 8), some of the iconic red Tims cups at participating Hamilton restaurants are going grey to celebrate the Canadian Football League’s 108th Grey Cup at Tim Hortons Field on Dec. 12.
“With the Grey Cup being hosted in Hamilton this year – the birthplace of Tim Hortons – and at Tim Hortons Field, we wanted to do something fun to show our support for the exciting event that Canadian football fans look forward to every year,” said Axel Schwan, president of Tim Hortons, in a press release.
“The fact that the hometown Ticats are playing for the Grey Cup makes this upcoming weekend all the more special.”
The cups, while supplies last, will be available in medium and large and will feature the Grey Cup logo.
The first Tim Hortons restaurant opened in Hamilton on Ottawa Street in 1964. Since then, it has grown into an international franchise with close to 5,000 locations worldwide, 4,000 of which are in Canada.
The 108th Grey Cup from Tim Hortons Field in Hamilton, featuring Arkells and The Lumineers in the Twisted Tea Grey Cup Halftime Show, kicks off at 6 p.m. on Sunday.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies
