Although the staff was great , the parking good for handicap, it was somewhat of a disappointment to pay $142 per ticket and get to your seat and have to clean ice off the back and base of your seat. That as well as 3 inches of snow at feet was not the greatest. I realize it is outdoor CFL in October, but in comparison to the Heritage Classic game 2 days later in Edmonton, the seats there were totally cleaned off and snow was removed prior to fans at game. Just an opinion.

Calgary Stampeders at McMahon Stadium
McMahon Stadium has been the home of the Stampeders since it opened in 1960. The stadium is owned by the University of Calgary and named after two Calgary residents, oilman Frank McMahon and his brother, George. It was the site of the 1988 Winter Olympics' opening and closing ceremonies. During home games, when Calgary scores a touchdown, a white gelding known as the "Quick Six" horse charges along the east sideline. Cowbells inside are ubiquitous. Don't miss the beery, brisket-filled tailgates, and if you're looking for a more exclusive experience, be sure to check out the stadium's unique patio seating.
Calgary Stampeders Football History
Founded in 1945, the Calgary Stampeders are the third-oldest active franchise in the Canadian Football League. Success came early for the Stampeders, who in 1948 romped through the regular season with 12 wins and no losses and beat the Ottawa Rough Riders, 12-7, in the Grey Cup. It remains the only undefeated season in CFL history. The particulars of that Grey Cup game in Toronto deserve a place in the history books, too. Victory was secured by way of the "sleeper play" — a touchdown scored by Norm Hill, who'd hid himself from the defense near the sideline and then flopped face-first onto the field. He caught the pass from quarterback Keith Spaith while lying on his back, or so the legend goes. The win touched off a boisterous celebration, with Calgary fans supposedly riding horses into the Royal York Hotel and even hoisting the Varsity Stadium goalposts through the front doors.
Since then, the Stampeders have won Grey Cups in 1971, 1992, 1998, 2001, 2008, 2014 and 2018. Under Wally Buono, head coach from 1990 to 2002, they reached the Cup six times in all. Between 2009 and 2014, coach John Hufnagel, a former Calgary quarterback, took the Stampeders to the Western final every year but 2011.
It's pretty pricey, I thought for $75 I would at least get an actual seat, one with a back and maybe a cup holder.
We’re SK fans & took in a SK/Calgary game…Riders lost 😠 ‘Nuff said! The Ticketmaster purchase & use was fine!
Always try to make it out to stamps game when I can. Amazing atmosphere, food and drinks.
We as a family enjoy the games we watch we bring the while family
A little cold but kept warm cheering. No problem with my 13 tickets on my wallet. Just scanned them one at a time and in you go.
Had a great time even though stampeders didn’t do so well
Seats were great, Stamps were slow out of the start, we left 5 mins early….and yes they won!!
Awesome it was great to see the elks play the stamps as I always work the stamps games
The weather was smoky, but the rain held off. The game seemed to be slipping away until half way thru the 4th quarter, when some breaks went the Stampeders way, and we scored the winning touchdown with 20 seconds left in the game. It doesn't get much better than that.
