Make it a major day event similar to what US College Football seems to try to do with bowl games.
This is entirely dependent on location, though.

There's been a lot of talk about how the Heritage Classic should come to Winnipeg now that we have a brand new CFL stadium here. Great. Awesome decision. I love it. I'll be there.

However, doing an outdoor game after dark in Winnipeg in the middle of February? It's late Feb. right now, and it's been beautiful weather this week so far... but a week or two ago it was well below -30C with the windchill, and that **** just gets even colder overnight. Not exactly ideal conditions if you're trying to convince tens of thousands of people to sit around outside for a few hours.
