The Grey Cup

The Grey Cup is the championship of the Canadian Football League (CFL) and the trophy awarded to the victorious team. The trophy is named after Albert Grey, the Governor General of Canada from 1904 until 1911. He donated the trophy to the Canadian Rugby Union in 1909 to recognize the top amateur rugby football team in Canada. By this time Canadian football had become markedly different from the rugby football from which it developed. Although it was originally intended to be awarded only to amateur teams (like the Stanley Cup), over time, the Grey Cup became the property of the Canadian Football League as it evolved into a professional football league. Amateur teams ceased competing for the Cup by 1954; since 1965, the top amateur teams, playing in U Sports, have competed for the Vanier Cup. [1]

The Grey Cup game is Canada's largest annual sports and television event, regularly drawing a Canadian viewing audience of about 4 million. [2] [3] Two awards are given for play in the game, Most Valuable Player and the Dick Suderman Trophy as most valuable Canadian player. [4] As a member of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, Andrew Harris is the only player to win both the Dick Suderman Trophy and the Grey Cup Most Valuable Player the same year, which he did in 2019.

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have made the most appearances (25), while the Toronto Argonauts have won the most championships (17) and have the best record in the Grey Cup composite standings (17-6). Despite the CFL's short-lived U.S. expansion in the mid-1990s, the Grey Cup was never played outside of Canada. The Baltimore Stallions were the only American team to appear in the Grey Cup (twice, losing in 1994 and winning the following year). Although the first Grey Cup game was in 1909, none were played from 1916 to 1919, so the 2012 Grey Cup was the 100th. [5] The 107th Grey Cup was played on November 24, 2019 at McMahon Stadium in Calgary, with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers defeating the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 33–12.

Win/Loss records

Although the official website of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats considers them as the same team, [19] the Tiger-Cats, Hamilton Alerts, Hamilton Tigers and Hamilton Flying Wildcats are all listed separately because, when the latter three were active, the teams competed as separate franchises. The Tigers and Flying Wildcats merged in 1950 to create the Tiger-Cats. [20]

Grey Cup Championship game and trophy of the Canadian Football League

The Grey Cup is both the championship game of the Canadian Football League (CFL) and the trophy awarded to the victorious team playing in the namesake championship of professional Canadian football. The game is contested between the winners of the CFL's East and West Divisional playoffs and is one of Canadian television's largest annual sporting events. The Toronto Argonauts have the most Grey Cup wins (17) since its introduction in 1909, while the Edmonton Elks have the most Grey Cup wins (11) since the creation of the CFL in 1958.
