They’re here … new seats arrive at Commonwealth Stadium

Edmonton Eskimos Staff

The moment the Eskimo Empire has eagerly awaited for is here. New seat installation is underway at Commonwealth Stadium.  

Over the next two seasons, the city-run initiative will see all seats replaced in sections, starting with sections F and G.  It’s not possible to know when specific sections will be complete at this this time.

The green and gold seats are two inches wider, more comfortable and have CUP HOLDERS. Executive suites will be outfitted with a high-back padded seat, while the current bench seating in the north and south end zones will be replaced with a half-back seat. Samples are on display in the Eskimo Team Store so stop by and take a “test drive.”

The current seats date back to the Commonwealth Games in 1978. They have seen their share of Eskimo history, including hosting four Grey Cup championships (1984, 1997, 2002 and 2010). Details on how you can purchase a seat are in development and will be available shortly. Stay tuned to
