Grey Cup TicketsThe Grey Cup is the final game of the Canadian Football League season, and each year's winner is crowned champion of the nine-league professional football league. It is also the name given to the trophy awarded to the game's winning team. Each year, the top team in the CFL's East Division takes on the top team in the west division to determine the ultimate bragging rights for the league. The Grey Cup is the largest annual sporting event in Canada with an estimated 4 million people tuning in on television to watch the latest championship game. The Toronto Argonauts have won more Grey Cups than any other team in Canada with 17 wins. The Edmonton Eskimos have 11 Grey Cups since the CFL was first created in 1958. This number represents the most championships in that time period. The 107th Grey Cup was played in Albert, Canada, on Nov. 24, 2019. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers earned the right to be called the 2019 CFL Champions in the contest with a 33–12 victory over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. You can purchase Grey Cup tickets at StubHub.
Where can I see a Grey Cup game?The 2020 Grey Cup game will be played at the Mosaic Stadium in Regina, Saskatchewan. The game will mark the 108th time two CFL teams took the field in search of the Grey Cup Trophy and will be played on Nov. 22. The 109th Grey Cup Championship will take place on Nov. 21, 2021, in Hamilton, Ontario, at Tim Hortons Field.
What players are the top performers in Grey Cup Championship history?The 1989 Grey Cup performance of quarterback Kent Austin is as good as any of the many historic performances the game has seen. Austin threw for 474 yards and three touchdown passes while leading his Saskatchewan Roughriders over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. The Roughriders needed every bit of the production Austin gave them as a late drive by the offense resulted in a game-winning field goal to ensure Saskatchewan a 43–40 victory. The 2016 performance by Henry Burris was just as impressive. Burris was 41 years old when he threw for 461 yards and two touchdowns in the 105th Grey Cup Championship Game. The winning touchdown pass from Burris was an 18-yard toss that gave the Ottawa Redblacks a 39–33 win over the Calgary Stampede in overtime. Other timeless Grey Cup performances include the 1989 two-touchdown receiving game by Tony Champion and the 1935 performance by Fritz Hanson who tallied more than 300 yards in punt returns.
What are the all-time greatest games in Grey Cup history?Not so surprisingly to Grey Cup fans, many of the top performances in Grey Cup history took place in the greatest game ever played. "The Kick" is the moniker attached to the 1989 championship game that most CFL fans consider the best Grey Cup Championship game ever played. The offenses of both the Tiger-Cats and Roughriders moved the football at will and exchanged five consecutive scoring drives in the second quarter. The final score of the game was a 35-yard game-winning field goal by Roughriders kicker Dave Ridgeway with two seconds showing on the game clock. The outlook for the CFL was bleak in 1996 in the days leading up to the Grey Cup. Many openly speculated that the league's last championship game was being played, but then the Toronto Argonauts and Edmonton Eskimos played a game that reminded everyone why the CFL is such a wonderful representative of Canadian football. The Argonauts prevailed 43–37 in what would later be dubbed the "Snow Bowl" due to the heavy snow cover on the field.
What coaches have won the most Grey Cup championships?Wally Buono was a head coach in the CFL from 1990 to 2011. The first stop as a head coach for Buono was the Calgary Stampeders where he won three Grey Cups in 13 seasons. Buono won two more Grey Cup titles with the British Columbia Lions to bring his total to five. Don Matthews won his first Grey Cup title as the head coach of the BC Lions in 1985. He was hired to coach the Baltimore Stallions, an expansion team in the United States, in 1994. Matthews and the Stallions won the Grey Cup the following season. His next two coaching championships took place in back-to-back years with the Toronto Argonauts in 1996 and 1997. Matthews tied the record for most Grey Cup wins by a head coach when he won a championship with his fourth team, the Montreal Alouettes, in 2002. The last of the three men to win five Grey Cup Championships as a CFL head coach is Hugh Campbell. The Edmonton Eskimos won five straight Grey Cups from 1978 to 1982 with Campbell at the helm.
