“We are tremendously excited to be offering seat reservations to the community,” said Tim Reid, Northern Kickoff Vice Chair and Chief Operating Officer at MacDonald Island Park in Fort McMurray. “The Northern Kickoff presented by Shell Albian Sands is destined to become one of those iconic moments in the history of this region as the most Northern game in CFL history, and an unforgettable experience for those who attend the first event to be held in the new SMS Stadium at Shell Place.”
