Community Apr 12, 2016 Guelph Tribune

The Toronto Argonauts announced on Tuesday that they will indeed be using the University of Guelph and Alumni Stadium as the site of their 2016 Canadian Football League training camp.

“Our decision to host training camp at the University of Guelph was based on our belief that this facility is best for our football team’s preparation for the upcoming season,” said Jim Barker, Argonauts general manager, in a press release.

Reports in recent weeks suggested the move was happening. The Argos made an official announcement on Tuesday morning.

“Alumni Stadium has an excellent football field and all of the other necessary facilities we need to be successful. We couldn’t be more excited about heading to Guelph later this spring,” said Barker.

Argonauts training camp kicks off with a three-day rookie camp that includes veteran quarterbacks and first-year CFL players beginning on Wednesday, May 25. All other veteran players will report to training camp on Saturday, May 28, said the release.

The Argonauts roster currently includes three players who played for the University of Guelph Gryphons - 2015 CFL Draft picks Dan MacDonald and Cam Walker, as well as long snapper Jake Reinhart, a Guelph native and Guelph CVI graduate. The Argos previously held training camp at the University of Guelph between 1978 to 1995, said the release. The Argos held camp at York University the last two seasons.
