Welcome to the home of the Hamilton Tiger-Cat Alumni. Our goal is to build membership and awareness of our Association and to recognize the rich history of football in Hamilton.

It is an ever evolving interactive site for all Tiger-Cat fans to contribute and build through photos, comments and information.

This site is a resource of the history of everything Tiger-Cat; from rosters to awards, profiles to statistics plus cards and collectibles. Check out our events page for where to meet some of your favourite alumni.

All current and former CFL & Tiger-Cat players, coaches, management and staff are welcome to apply for membership. We have over 175 members and are continually recruiting.  Visit our members’ page for more membership information.
