McMaster will kick off the 2009 season, at home on Monday September 7, 2009 vs. the University of Waterloo at 2:00 PM at Ron Joyce Stadium.

This will be the first Welcome Week football game McMaster has hosted since 2003.

The game will mark the third time McMaster has hosted on Labour day since Ontario University Athletics began scheduling games in the first week in September since 2001.

McMaster Director of Athletics & Recreation commented that “we regret the conflict with the Labour Day Classic between the Tiger-Cats and the Argonauts but hosting a game on the first day of Welcome Week provides us with a unique opportunity to host over 4,000 first year students.

Season and single game tickets are available on the McMaster University Athletics website at http://www.marauders.ca
