The 2013 Hamilton Tiger-Cats season will be the 56th season for the team in the Canadian Football League and their 64th overall. The Tiger-Cats will attempt to improve upon their disappointing 6–12 record from 2012, return to the playoffs after a one year absence, and win their 9th Grey Cup championship. The Tiger-Cats will primarily play their home games at Alumni Stadium in Guelph, Ontario.
Due to the demolition of Ivor Wynne Stadium and the construction of the New Hamilton Stadium on the same site, the Tiger-Cats were forced to play the majority of their home games outside of Hamilton for the first time in franchise history. On November 20, 2012, the Tiger-Cats announced the signing of a memorandum of understanding to play most of their 2013 schedule at a renovated Alumni Stadium in Guelph. The decision came after scouting and considering several other venues within and outside the region. Ron Joyce Stadium, the nearest available stadium, ruled itself out in June 2012.
On March 5, 2013, the 2013 schedule was released, revealing that eight of the regular season games would be played in Guelph and one would be played in Moncton, New Brunswick as part of Touchdown Atlantic.
The 2013 CFL Draft will take place on May 6, 2013. Currently, the Tiger-Cats have seven selections in the six-round draft, including the first overall pick. The club has an additional selection in the fifth round coming from Calgary after a trade for Milton Collins.
